    I use Speer Gold Dots for carry and Lawman for practice. Two reasons. It's good ammo and if ever there is a legal situation where I'm under scrutiny, it's the same stuff the Police use. Not so called "killer" ammo.

    I've been using a lot of the 115gr Federal RTP (RTP9115) ammo for 3-gun because my local gun shop usually has it in stock at a good price. I've gone through a couple cases with zero problems. I will use 147gr if there is a MGM spinner on the stage though. the 115gr just don't move it much and I'm not good enough to get multiple fast hits like the big guys. I use 124gr Speer Gold Dot in my carry gun.

    I have to address my previous comment.
    The accuracy difference is enough to matter.
    American eagle red box, or geco is produces groups about half of the federal champion stuff.
    It will only matter on far partials or headshots, but the price is about the same so I no longer recommend the champion.

    My 9mm carry ammo is 124 JHP; G. D. or HST.

    My range/practice and match ammo is handload with 124 gr Zero JHP and VV n320.
    The combo of n320 which burns clean, and the encapsulated bullet base/no exposed lead- of the JHP, keep the Red Dot screen substantially cleaner than other combos I’ve used.
    When shooting a couple hundred rds. practice session or match, this has become a consideration.
