    I have been carrying Speer Gold Dots for 38 Special & 357 Magnum. I carry CorBon DPX for 9mm & 45 ACP. I count my blessings that I have only had to test them at the range.

      Speer Gold Dots has been my favorite for many years. They have never let me down and I have used them in several different calibers..YMMV !
      The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his/her rifle.

        We use the Hornady Critical Defense. The poll I saw had it 3rd behind the HST and Gold Dot. I guess anyone of those 3 will work. Not too happy about the buck a round price, though

              Always liked those federal Nyclads for the 38 special, and have them in my model 38 to this day.

                Hornady Critical Defense is my favorite. All other things being equal,
                it literally has the word "defense" in the name. Of course, Hornady
                also makes great product.
