So I posted the other day about getting thrown in the pool while carrying and having some ammo submerged. These were Federal Hydra-Shoks and Remington Golden Sabers. As some of you may recall, the Hydra-Shoks misfired twice in two mags after submersion. The Golden Sabers did not. I went to the range today to try out some different ammo. First was more Hydra-Shoks in 180 gr. These were not particularly accurate and had a lot of kick. 180 gr HSTs were extremely accurate and easy to fire. I'd carry these any day. 180 Golden Sabers are also accurate, but seemed to kick harder, which threw off my target reacquisition. 180 gr Winchester Ranger SXT, which are marketed as law enforcement ammo and purport to be a subsonic round were the easiest to fire, most accurate, and had the least kick. They also seemed to burn cleaner. 180gr Speer Gold Dots were accurate, but once again were harder to reacquire target. I didn't like either the 165gr Hydra-Shoks or HST, nor the 165 gr Golden Sabers. Bottom line, in my opinion, the Winchester Ranger SXT in 180 gr is the best bullet out there for .40 S&W carry. I looked up some ballistics data and it expands well, had an average penetration of 13" in gel in FBI tests, and was truly subsonic. What do y'all think?
