    I think premium JHPs are pretty much a wash these days. If I had to pick my favorite, it would be 147 gr HST standard pressure, but my wife didn't like the recoil from them, so I went back to 115 gr.

    Oh, and I completely agree with Shawn, the CD 'clogged cavity' problem is pretty much an invented problem and solution from Hornady.

    Sounds like you are set to me! :)

    Before ammo prices and availability went crazy, my personal choice is 124gr +P in either Speer Gold Dot or Federal HST. That is just my preference, though. I would not feel unarmed with any of the premium JHP ammo from one of the big manufacturers. When it comes down to it the differences are just not all that significant. IMO at least. ;)

    Wow...you're going to get a lot of different answers.

    Federal HST's (124 or 147gr)
    Speer Gold Dots
    Wincheter Rangers (I forget the specific mode, RA9T?)
