Glock 23

i'd like a little help here. Looking for the best round/ load for my G23. It's my nightstand / home defence weapon.

For the .40

Corbon DPX, Speer Gold Dot, Federal HST, or Hornady Critical Defense

.40 ammo

I like 165 gr. Federal HST, 140 gr. Corbon DPX or 165 gr. Winchester ranger SXT. I try to stay away from the 180 gr. stuff because I dont trust the expansion coming out of such a short bbl.

The best load is the one that is most accurate in your particular gun. Buy a few different kinds and see which one your gun likes the most. I don't have a .40 anymore, so I don't know what all they have out there. If it's available, I suggest trying Speer Gold Dot HP Short Barrel load as one of the test rounds, and definitely a lightweight Corbon JHP.
