Would the Winchester Silvertip 185 grn JHP be a good carry round for a Colt Defender? I believe the lighter bullet (less than 230 grn) in the shorter barrel would perform better. Any better suggestions (brand, bullet weight) for a carry round? Thanks folks.

I don't load 9mm, so I buy my carry ammo for that gun: Silvertips. I really don't know how they behave over there at the business end - one day I need to shoot some wet phone books with them to see - but they hit where I aim and that's what counts for me.

I carry Golden Saber handloads in my .45, so I can't speak to Silvertips there.

If God didn't want us to own guns, why did He make the 1911?
