I'm a happy new owner of a Glock 21SF (3rd Gen). This is my first .45ACP, so I'm new to this caliber.
For self/home defense, I'm considering three loads...
Federal HST (P45HST2)
Winchester "T" Series (RA45T)
Speer Gold Dot (53966).
All of these loads are 230 JHP (non +P).
My question...
Is there any load known NOT to work well in the Glock 21SF?
Thanks
:)

All of those should feed properly, but you should always test a minimum of 100 rounds to be sure. (I test 200 rounds before I call it "ready for carry.")

Impossible to say. Ammo is generally compatible to most mfg's and models but may not perform well in your specific gun. The only way to know is to see if your gun likes it by buying some and shooting it. Expensive these days; I know!

RevDerb is for the most part right in that if a bullet works in one Glock 21sf you can't assume with certainty it will work in another. However, some models of some guns can be averse to certain ammo.

My 21SF runs like a champ though with each you listed. You don't shop at GT, do you?

no.

any of those will work fine in your G21. the Federal HST is the best of the ones on your list :)

Your Glock will more than likely run anything you want to throw through it

Any of those will be fine.

Personally, I wouldn't blow thru 200 rounds to see if it will feed them or delcare it "carry ready". Unless you got a defective gun, it will run correctly out of the box. At most I would shoot a mag or two of the high dollar defensive loads you are gonna carry to test feeding. Just yesterday, I got issued a new Gen4 to replace my old Gen3. A whole line of us qualified with them right out of the box. About 60 brand new pistols have been issued. I saw no malfunctions and heard of no malfunctions.
