    So I know the Ranter(T) is very popular in here but shit, I can't find it in stock anywhere in .40 and 165gr.

    What would you pick as a second choice? Gold-Dot?

    I'm carrying Gold Dots right now. Next time I rotate my carry ammo I'm probably going to switch to Corbon DPX.

    I need a good source on some HP. I actually have resorted to FMJ ammo for now.

    You guys should really check out this ammo.

    I use this for my day-to-day ccw ammo and I've shot about a box or two and really like it over some of the older stuff I've used such as "ranger hollow points" etc..

    I will probably pick up some DPX, but it's harder than hell to find right now. :hs:
