Self Defense Ammo

This is a discussion on Self Defense Ammo within the The Ammo Can forums, part of the Armory Talk category; New XDm .45 owner here. I just but a box of Remington UMC .45. Plan on blastin' them off tomorrow. Any comments on the ammo ...

For range work UMC is fine. For SD chose from the list below. The list is not in any order other than lightest to heaviest and not by performance. Make sure the round function in your gun reliably and they hit where you aim. You can also include the PDX in the list below.

Barnes XPB 160 & 185 gr JHP (copper bullet)
Federal HST 230 gr JHP (P45HST2)
Federal HST 230 gr +P JHP (P45HST1)
Federal Tactical 230 gr JHP (LE45T1)
Speer Gold Dot 230 gr JHP
Speer Gold Dot 230 gr +P JHP
Winchester Ranger-T 230 gr JHP (RA45T)
Winchester Ranger-T 230 gr +P JHP (RA45TP)

I don't think any fmj is the best choice for SD...
