I'm wondering what you all keep handy for either your home defense/carry round (same thing for me)? Back when I first got my XD45C, I bought some Federal Premium HydraShok 230gr JHP. I shot through a few magazines worth and what was left over, I keep loaded in it. Since then, I know there have been quite a few developments in hollow-point ammo. Even when I bought the Hydra-Shok ammo, there were some people saying that it was on the way out because it was an older technology and there were better options available. The main critique was that it doesn't expand properly when shooting through fabric, especially thicker fabric like denim. Now, in Phoenix, I very rarely have to worry about people wearing heavy jackets, but in the winter, who knows? It's also probably not very likely that I'll encounter a threat that's not wearing clothes either... So I'm examining options for a new round to replace the Hydra-Shok as my standard defense round. A while back, an article in American Rifleman was singing the praises of the Winchester Supreme Elite Bonded PDX1 round and the Hornady Critical Defense FTX round. Does anybody here have experience with one or both of these rounds? I'm not sure I like that the Hornady round is 185gr, as I'm partial to the 230gr of my Hydra-Shok or the PDX1. What do you all keep loaded and what went into your decision making process in selecting that round?
