Sig has their new 365 ammo which is 115 grain V-Crown and Federal has their 150 grain HTS Micro. One company went down in weight and one went up to try to make a defensive round more suitable for the short barrel pistols. I had historically used the Federal 147 grain Hydra Shoks in my Glocks and want to make the best choice I can for my Sig P365. Any thoughts about ammo made specifically for the short barrel pistols. And does anyone out there use Corbon DPX as their defensive ammo? I know it's expensive, but everyone who has tested this ammo on YouTube says it's the bomb.
|I have not yet begun |
Regular ol' non-+P HSTs test rather well in short barrels.
Look at some tests done by ShootingTheBull410 on youtube.
I haven't seen any test of Sig ammo that made me want to go out and buy some.
After the game, the King and the pawn go into the same box.
Speer has gold dot short barrel.
The published numbers for the Sig 365 ammunition (it's not the same as the v-crown) are anemic.
I shoot Gold dot +P out of the small pistols (P365, G43, etc); no problem.
|We gonna get some |
oojima in this house!
There are rounds that are suitable. These are made to reduce recoil in micros. I would use HST standard pressure. If recoil is an issue, I would go with critical defense.
TCB all the time...
|Go ahead punk, make my day|
HSTs or Speer Gold Dots for 9MM.
SIG Ammo is the new kid on the block, so I’d stick with long established ammunition manufacturers with street cred that is beyond reproach.
I seen several boxes of it at my local range on Sunday. They said they don't sell much of it as they also stock HST.
147 grain standard pressure seems to work perfect out of my P365. I've got right at 100 rounds with zero issues.
I carry 124 grain +p Speer gold dot and my 365 handles it well.
Sure you’ve all seen this but wanted to make sure: Lucky Gunner Ballistic Tests
Federal LE HST 124 grain std pressure in my P365. As a bonus, it is available online in 50 round boxes at $19-21.00 per box of 50
