I have Speer Gold, but have never shot it at the price it costs. Remmington makes a 115 gr hollow point available at Walmart much cheaper. Either would do I guess.

+3, but I have it on back order, difficult to find at the gun shop or online.

I don't have a 9mm anymore. But when I did, 124 gr JHP was my minimum. I prefer 147 gr JHP's, but both are ridiculously scarce to find these days. I don't like +p's or +p+'s. May as well move on up to .40S&W if you feel you need hot 9mm loads.

How do you know if your handgun will cycle it? Defense rounds aren't cheap but money well spent to shoot at the range to ensure proper operation.

I am using Speer Gold Dot 115gr hollow points.
