    With self/home defense, I usually go with the heaviest bullet I can find.

    Make sure you run a couple mags of through your gun to detect any potential problems. Better to do it now than when your life may be on the line.

    I like the 185 +p over the 230s, personally.

    Some people prefer velocity over mass and others, vice versa. I fall into the latter camp because I read a post from someone reputable over on arfcom that (paraphrased), "bullet design has reached a point where reliable expansion of hollow points is no longer dependent on the additional velocity gained from the +p load" But hey, I'm sure a CoM double tap with either 185gr or 230gr will stop the bad guy :bigthumb:
