When my P365 gets back from Sig I’m going to have to decide on a self-defense round and run a bunch of it through this piece. What has worked well for you?

I like the all copper 115gr from Barnes and just got to try the 365 carry ammo from sig and both are very accurate with the sig ammo being a little more controllable and faster on follow up shots.

Same thing I use for all 9mm's - 124gr. HST.

I’m testing my P365 to be one of my carry guns so I’m limited to only Ranger 127gr +P+

It seems to like it just fine.



Not minority enough!

I run gold dot 124 gn through most of my 9mm;s; the smaller pistols like the P365 and G43 get gold dot short barrel

For me 115 grain Barnes or the Sig 124 grain. Both work great.

Hornady 124g Personal Defense. If you are LEO, Hornady supplies a great LE only round which I use.

I've tried 115gr Critical Defense, 135gr Critical Duty, and 124gr Sig V-Crown. All ran fine and grouped very similarly, with a slight nod to the 135gr Critical Duty. Since I have the 115gr Critical Defense in my 229 now, it's probably what I'll stick with unless I find a deal on the 135gr.

Hornady 115gr XTP. I have over 1600rds total out of my P365 and about 500 of those are this round.

I tried Federal HST, Fiocchi's with XTP bullets, Golden Sabers, Federal 9BPLE +p+, Winchester Rangers and even older Winchester Silvertips. All of those rounds were flawless but I shot the best groups with the Hornady XTP's.

I was figuring that the 124gr HSTs for Micro pistols would be the ticket, ( they fed and function in my 365 just fine, ) however 124gr +P Speer Gold Dots grouped the best with it, so that's what its loaded with currently.

Today after work, I will be trying out the same load from Speer, but in its 'Short Barrel' version to see if there's any difference between these and the non- short barrel +Ps.

I'd start with 147 grain HST, and likely the +P version. 147s don't seem to be as velocity sensitive as lighter bullets.

I don't have a 365 but I use Federal HST2 147 grain standard pressure in my rwo 3" barrel 9mms, a Kahr MK9 and Beretta Nano, on the theory that they will lose less velocity in the short barrels. I have several hundred that I bought at a good price.
