I routinely carry a H&K USP-40 when backpacking. I mostly carry 180gr. hollow points or sometimes 180gr. FMJ's. It's nice to see some purpose built ammo for this situation. I've honestly never loaded 200gr. bullets in the 40 - always figuring 180grs. was going to give me better perfomance.

The 40 is better than nothing for sure! I don't yet own a 44 Magnum and really wouldn'
t want to carry anything larger anyway. I like being able to carry something I normally carry and shoot.
