Hey there. I'm just wondering what ammo you guys like to carry in your favorite carry guns. In my .45's, I carry Cor-Bon 165 grain +p powerballs and jhp. They have a muzzle velocity of 1250fps. That puts them at .357 magnum power, but .45 caliber holes :nuts:. In my 9mm I carry Cor-Bon 90 grain +p. I think those little guys are rated at something like 1400 or 1500 fps. I can't really remember, but they are really zippy. When I used to have a Ruger Super Redhawk in .454, I would carry Cor-Bon 335 grain super hard cast at 1600 fps. Those monsters had 1900 fp of energy. That was my "fishing in NW Montana" gun.

I'm the oddball that carries reloads...230 grain XTP's loaded to 820 fps from a 4.25 inch barrel (just shy of +P in some books...the bottom end of +P in others).

Bud,
I'm drawing a blank. What does HST stand for? I probably already know, but I didn't get enough sleep last night, and I'm having a hard time thinking. A common problem that thinking thing is.

230 gr Hydrashoks. Any premium JHP will do perfectly fine, but Hydrashoks have always run 100% in my 1911's,so I know they'll work if I need them to.

Yeah,I had some Gold Dots and they had a few performance issues in a Kimber and a Dan Wesson. I know Gold Dots are pretty good,but it got in my head and I can't carry them now.
