Some people swear by HS and there are alot of reports of them stopping badguys in their tracks... If the bullet expanded or not is moot as long as the attacker is stopped quick. I used to carry Federal 230gr HS but recently switched to Federal 200gr +p EFMJ.Originally posted by Greg1911:
Right now I carry federal hydrashock in my government and para what should I carry it seems like these are pretty good rounds for stopping power. Should I consider a +p round?

What do people think about Remington's Golden Sabers? Penetration tests look pretty good. They're offered in 185gr. +P, 185gr., and 230gr. Seems to me that fits short barreled as well as full size optimums. In addition, the Golden Saber bullets can be bought for reasonable prices (www.midwayusa.com) for reloading purposes. What say ye?
I use them all the time.They feed like hardball and expand reliably.tom.

Also, Clint Smith of Thunder Ranch publicly states that he carries Ball ammo as well. Just a little extra info for all of you.Originally posted by rex:
Ball isn't that bad,it leaves 2 holes for improved blood loss,and Chuck Taylor will give you a few reasons why it's his choice for carry.[/B]
