Most Reliable Defense Round for P-14?

I currently use 230 Golden Saber, with no problems yet. But is any particular hollowpoint round considered more reliable than others in the P-14? Brand? Weight? Velocity? Whatever? Thanks. G

Sorry George, each individual gun has its favourite food. Sounds like you found one that yours likes - and it's not a bad choice.

Shane - Thanks. Guess I'll stick with the Golden Saber. Seems to be holding up in the street statistics pretty well. The only complaints I ever heard were jacket separation, and once American Rifleman called it "sluggish", meaning that they had found some with low velocity. This was back about maybe 1996 or so.

"Holding up in the street statistics pretty well"? -how many people have you shot?

I carry 230gr Golden Sabers but never used any except at the range. I have noticed in a few recent boxes that the hollow point "holes" were drilled pretty ragged.

I'm a big fan of the Remington bullet config. The bullet is jacketed around the front nose area which provides a solid, smooth face on the feed ramp.

185 gr. JHP, I load this +P 10 gr. of HS6 which rates at 1162 fps in a 5" bbl. I find that the jacket separates from the lead IN the target. Jacket forms a "star" like the evil "black talon." (most JPH work this way)
