best personal defense ammo for 995?

  1. I bought my 995 to use as mainly a plinker, but i can also see my self picking it up to use when investigating noises, and motion lights coming on at odd hours of the night and when my home alarm goes off. So if the need arises what the best personal defense ammo to use in the 995. I have in my springfield xd .45 federal hydra-shok fmj's and they seem to FSU! Wondering if you guys would have any input to this.

    if you can find them 147gr black talons by winchester

  3. We have sticky posts on ammo selection in these sections for a good reason. Take a look at them as they have been verified by the FBI for a full 12 inches of penetration as required by the Federal Government for use in Law Enforcement.
