In order of carry frequency:

G27 - Federal HST 180 gr
G30 - Winchester Ranger T 230 gr
G19 - Speer Gold Dot 124 gr +P
S&W 442 - Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel 135 gr +P
G22 - Federal HST 180 gr
G21 - Winchester Ranger T 230 gr
S&W 686+ - Remington SJHP 125 gr .357 magnum

Each of these was based on a lot of reading and recommendations of several well-respected individuals with a lot more knowledge of such things than I possess.

G27 (.40 S&W): Speer 155 grain Gold Dot JHP.
G23 (.40 S&W): Federal 180 grain HST JHP.
G17 (9x19): Winchester 147 grain Supreme Elite PDX1 JHP.

I choose ammunition based on something I can get in bulk at a reasonable price but also has multiple sources of favorable test data.

.40 S&W
Hornady
Critical Defense
165 gr.
I had decided that I wanted a 165 gr bullet at around 1100 to 1200 fps based on recomendations from several sources and the theory behind the FTX controlled expansion bullet just makes sense to me.

165gr or 180gr Speer Gold Dots in my G22 and G23.

Both weights shoot and function great in both pistols so I buy whichever is available at the time.
