I like the Hornady Critical Defense...but that's not in your list.

Hornady is about the only brand I have not shot out of a pistol. I have used them for my 270 and they seemed to be very accurate. Ill have to give them a try sometime.

I have had horrible issues with expansion of GDHP. This has been a recurring problem for me, and as soon as I exhaust my last case of 180 GDHP I will never buy them again. I love Speer bullets typically, but the Gold Dots have left me disappointed.

YMMV

My favorite round is a 230 gr XTP. But you might have just a wee bit of a problem getting it into a .40 cal gun, such is life.

After shooting a couple of boxes of gold dots SB and golden sabers I have chosen the to go with the golden sabers. They seem to work best for me. I can not tell much difference between either one. The sabers shoot flawlessly and they are cheaper.

any conversation about a personal defense round and cost should NEVER ever ever ever ever ever come into the same paragraph, no less the same sentence.

Cost should only play a role in range/target ammo.

base your decision on results alone - its your life and that of your loved ones you're discussing.

My $0.02 USD
