45 Ammo Question ?
When I was living in Florida,I used "Hornady" critical defence rounds.
Now i'm back in good old Pa. and can't seem to find these around here.

I was thinking of trying Federal Premium Hydra-shok 230 jhp.
I've done some minimal testing on some spoiling hams with the Hornady's
but my testing was limited , but interesting .

What say ye ?
And thanks for your Time and patients ! Smile

I use 230g. Hornady XTP JHPs, myself. Red Dot powder, CCI primers...this has been my recipe for nearly a year. The expansion I got with factory Hydrashok ammo never impressed me.
Unbanned since September 2012.
Going solely off internet gossip I would say a tossup between the two. Both have a fair share of expansion failure stories. I personally would not carry a 45 that wasn't 230 grains. If you drop the weight down I just don't see the advantage over a 40 with extra capacity.

Look up Federal HST, you can usually find decent prices on those.
The law? The law is a human institution...
