Smile Hello From Michigan

I just joined the Ruger forum but have been reading your comments and advice for quite some time.

I bought a Ruger GP100 Model 1715 in December and have been very pleased. Shoots very accurately and is comfortable in the Galco Silhouette holster.

Still sorting out my favorite ammo for self defense. So far I like the Hornaday 38SP +P 110gr FTX Critical Defense. Also like the Hornaday 357 Magnum 140gr version, but accuracy is so far better with the +P, but will keep practicing. Using simple 38SP FMJ 130gr for most of my range practice, but shoot a few of the SD rounds each time to get used to their feel. Want to try 357 125gr JHP next.

Anyone else with a GP100 Model 1715 want to share your preferred self defense round?
