Normally I say bigger is better but in .40SW, I'm worried about pressures, so I use 165's for PD ammo.

I use 147 in 9mm and plan to use 230 in 45 ACP

Maybe I'm too cautious but had a round blow out in my pistol made me cautious.

Thanks Buss, I was kind I leaning towards the 165 gr myself. I just wasn't sure.

I'm from the school "the bigger the better"...180 grain !


( Moved thread from Which Glock to Ammo & Reloading )
I usually am too, but when it comes to .40s, I shoot 165gr, period. In .45GAP, I shoot 200gr, but primarily because that's the most common bullet size in the caliber; don't see too many 230gr .45GAP rounds, probably because of the shorter case.

^This. I haven't had a blowout, but it's far more likely to happen with a 180gr bullet, because there's so much less room in the case. A little overcharge in powder and boom.
