    I recently bought a .45 Glock 21 and have shot a box of Reminton UMC fmj's at the range but would like to know opinions on some good realiable defense ammo. Thanks for your input, Stu

    Winchester SXT ammo is all I carry. Or their silvertip hollowpoints are good too.

    But, there's a lot of good stuff out there. Just make sure you run a couple boxes of it through the gun to make sure it will function properly.

    Depends on Uncle Sam's whim every 3 yrs.
    TAP

    Fed Hydra-shok

    Rem Golden Sabre

    Corbon DPX

    Hornady XTP

    Win SXT

    All good to go. I carry XTP, Hydra-shok, Silvertips, depending on caliber.

    You're G21 can effectively shoot every .45 ACP weight from 160 to 230 grain, so plenty options.

    For the .45, I had carried 185 Gr. Hydrashoks but have recently purchased some 230 Gr. +P Gold Dot HPs that seem very promising. The Hornady TAP stuff is AWESOME in .40 but at $46.00 per 50 for the 230 Gr. +P GDHPs I couldn't resist for the .45 from http://georgia-arms.com.... I also bought some GDHP .40s in 155 Gr. +P for the small .40 I have.
