I'd search the forum for older posts. 9mm/9x19mm selections are popular topics.
There are a few good choices in 9x19mm. Top loads include the Ranger T 127gr +P+ JHP, Ranger T 124gr JHP +P bonded, the new Hornady Critical Duty 135gr +P JHP, Golden Saber 124gr bonded JHP +P, Speer Gold Dot 124gr JHP +P, Corbon DPX, PowRball 9mm.
The Hornady Critical Duty, www.Hornady.com
, has impressive specs. The DPX, Ranger T & Speer Gold Dot 9mm rounds have proven records too.
For defense or CC only use well made factory rounds, NO reloaded or hand loaded 9mm rounds.
