    I have been thinking about going jacketed for carry guns. haven't loaded jacketed bullets in handguns in a lot of years though. Just might though. practice mostly with cast and jacketed for carry.

    Too hard to follow the trends and with ammo changes, that shifts so much so that your best round could be outdated before it may ever bee needed. The absolute best round there is has 12 more following it!
