I have to go with the crowd on this one. I use Speer GD too in all of my handguns. Go with the +P designation in 9mm. My XDs can't get enough of it and it isn't too potent for range use. Excellent defensive round with proven stopping power. Great deals can be found on this ammunition at www.Ammoman.com. They have exceptional service there too.
I've been running 124gr Hydrashoks, though I'll be switching those out for something else shortly. The Federals feed and shoot great, but the ballistics tests on the 9mm Hydrashok don't paint a pretty picture when shot through heavy clothing. Also, the muzzle flash is excessive.
