Im looking for the best self defense loads for my g21, im not so worried about the cost as these will only be for carring and sparly shot. im more concerned with reliabilty and the putem down factor.
Not sure what a "putem down factor" is, but pick one of these which functions best in your gun and practice as much as you can afford.
