Someone will come along and post the link to the "approved" list that conforms to the FBI protocol. What I use may not work for you or your pistol yada yada, so to keep it simple I'll tell you that I use the SPEER 124 gr. +P Gold Dot. It's on the "approved" list and if it works for you and your pistol, there are few better.

  • Winchester Ranger-T 124 gr +P JHP (RA9124TP)
  • Winchester Ranger Bonded 124 gr +P JHP (RA9BA)
  • Winchester Ranger-T 127gr JHP +P+ (RA9TA)
  • Winchester Ranger-T 147gr JHP (RA9T)
  • Winchester Bonded 147gr JHP (RA9B/Q4364)
  • Speer Gold Dor 124gr JHP
  • Speer Gold Dot 124gr JHP +P (53617)
  • Speer Gold Dot 147gr JHP (53619)
  • Remington Golden Saber 124 gr +P JHP bonded (GSB9MMD)
  • Remington Golden Saber 147gr JHP (GS9MMC)
  • Federal Tactical 124gr JHP (LE9T1)
  • Federal Tactical 135gr JHP +P (LE9T5)

I think that the Speer, Remington Golden Sabre, and Winchester choices are all great. Can't really go wrong with any of them. See which you and your gun like the best and go with that.

As to bullet weight, that also is something to choose. THAT could be a whole thread by itself!!! But yeah any if the brands I mentioned are good choices.

I like federal HST 124 grain. Double tap also makes some good stuff imo. I have a box of each on the way.
