    Of those listed, Ranger T, however I choose to use, Speer Gold Dot 230g, it's a great round !

    What caliber? I carry (and am issued by my PD) Speer Gold Dot 165gr in .40

    For .45acp Ranger is good and Remington Gold Sabre in 230gr is a well known (and proven) standard.

    Any of the ones listed are good. Above are just my suggestions.

    Haven't ever shot any speer gold dots. But I have only heard good things about them. I bought some of the ranger t did some water jug test and had several jacket core separations. Is this a common thing with the t

    I haven't heard too many jacket core separations, I carry a G21 on duty, and we are issued the Ranger T series, it is a good round, however off duty I prefer the Speer Gold Dot in my G30

    May I ask why you prefer the Speer over the gold dot. I have heard alot of department are issued the gold dot.. I myself am not a Leo. I am a licensed private investigator from alabama.

    I'm confused, Speer is the gold dot.... Compared to Ranger T series, it has better ratings, and have had zero malfunctions on my G30. I'm a firm believer if it's not broke don't fix it, hence why I stick with the Gold Dot 230g

    I also have another question since you are a leo. What would be the difference between the Speer gold personal protection round and the one labeled for leo. Or are there a difference

  15. Speer gold dots here in my 21 and 30, as well as in my Sig 9mm. Good personal defense stuff.
