    The darling ammo for me is Federal HST in 9mm, .45, .38spc. 380 gets Hornady XTP.
    The HST make nasty wound channels. The XTP has excellent penetration and expansion from short barrels.

    I have had very expensive hunting bullets not preform as advertised while in Africa. This is why everyone who should ever have to shoot another human needs to shoot until the threat is eliminated.
