Defensive Ammo

What do you use for CCW in your Glock 20/29 ? Woods ammo protection from BIG critters ?

In my G29 I carry the Underwood 155gr XTP because it's the fastest bonded JHP available in a full power load that I know of and it's #1 in muzzle energy among the Underwood line. I generally value speed over weight in a bullet.

Also the 155gr TMJ from Underwood makes a good range/practice companion if you value practicing with what you carry because it's a little cheaper than the XTP while having almost the same speed and ME.

I'm not lucky enough to have any woods I can go exploring these days

I got my first Glock, and it is a G20, Mostly a CCW at the house, and a HogLeg when out in the bush looking for Deer, and wanted a 4 legged critter stopper, I carry Underwood 135g JHP at 1600fps, for HD and 200g hardcast for the woods, been wanting to try the Hornady CDuty or CDeffence load, Heard some good dope on those rounds..

Forest, and we have a Just a few Mountain Lions and a Crap load of Yotes, that have know to rush you.

I understand, as I'm a CA hunter as well. We have some fairly aggressive coyotes around here, too. I lost an old mare to a small pack (3-4) about a month ago. Cougars (the 4 legged kind) are "shoot on sight" around here, DFG be damned. Lots of big hogs here, too. They regularly plow up the pastures and ponds, and within a couple dozen yards of the house (and they keep the freezer full). Got meth labs and pot gardens around here, too.

The reason for the question is, you didn't mention a hunting load, which is very different than defense loads, in most of CA. Except in the extreme north of the state, none of the bullets you listed are acceptable for hunting, or having within reach while hunting. And, as a bow hunter, you know that having any firearm while hunting is a huge no-no, regardless of what "other" critters you may encounter.
