Okay ammo guys, what do you think and use constantly as EDC ammo for you Walther PPS .40? I’ve been using 180 gr. Federal HST for quite some time, what and why do you use what you do?

I am between Hornady Critical Defense (currently in the mix). And Federal Guard Dog. Both are filled hollow points that feed really really reliably, and do real damage when they hit their mark. GoodNESS I touched off one of each of those into ballistics gelatin. The results were... humbling to say the least.

I was talking to someone else on here about Frangible ammo and maybe putting that in for the nightstand gun as I live in a townhouse and don't want a pill flying inadvertently into a neighbors house.

I forget what the Federals are, I think they are similar, but the Hornady CD's are 185's IIRC. They use low-flash propellant to reduce temporary blindness chances should you need to use it in the dark, and bright cases to make chamber checks or press checks easier.
