    Is this the ammo you are referring to? https://www.luckygunner.com/9mm-luge...-tac-xpd-hp-20

    What can you purchase in adequate quantity for your needs (like 1000-2500 round minimums)?

    What offers adequate terminal performance for your needs (ie. meets FBI, IWBA, or equivalent testing)?

    Then pick that load and stop worrying about ammo....
    Thanks Doc. Iíd say Iím just trying to avoid wasting money on expensive ammo if itís not a good recommendation for these types of guns. FWIW itíll be out of a sig365 so I just want to make sure itís a vetted round before I start testing reliability. Your recommendation is much appreciated.

    That, or it's also loaded by Black Hills, and ASYM (maybe others).

    I have not chronographed it, but I feel like the Black Hills runs a little hotter.

    Most duty ammo loaded by vendors with a history of successful large USG contracts and good QC, like Black Hills, Federal/Speer, Hornady, will work well.

    That 115 Barnes TAC XP is a great bullet. It may be helpful to note that Barnes loading is rather light and can be near the functional threshold of some guns. Quite accurate though. The BHA loading has the next most "oomph", and is the the most accurate. When Corbon loaded the actual Barnes bullet in its DPX line, they had the most oomph and least (but acceptable) accuracy of the three.

    I think the most important part about the series is, there's a LOT of viable choices, so if one isn't as reliable in your poison pill dispenser of choice, you have options.

    Now I just wish he'd get back to making content.
