What's the best 9mm round for self defense?

I use Winchester hollow points

A lot of hollow points will not feed well and cause jams. Just speaking from experience having owned at least 20 different models of 9MM semi auto pistols.

Oh really, I rarely have my 9mm jam. However my 22 does. Maybe time to buy new bullets for my 22. I figure one shot on the 22 or 9 will be enough. I'm a good shot. But like I said my 9 don't jam. You think that's why my 22 does?

Are you using 22 hollow points, fmj, or lead in the 22. Handgun or rifle?
Report as
Okay this is what I have right now-
Stinger hypervelocity (brand) ?
22 long rifle copper-plated hollow point
1640 fps
32 grain
That's what the case says. My 22 is a handgun. So, am I using the wrong bullets?
Report as
Not necessaraly the wrong bullets, could be the feed lips on the magazine or copper buildup on the ramp. try some fmjs and see how they work. What is the make of handgun? Ruger?

Okay. It's a Derringer Remmington relvover Winchester magnum?? Pretty sure that's what it is it's nice looking
Report as
Not sure how a revolver could jam. But if the gun is marked winchester magnum you should be using 22 winchester magnum ammo not 22 long rifle. That could be your problem.

Okay....can I just take it to a gun/ammo shop if it's not loaded and ask them??

That's your best bet.

I agree with christopherm a 1911 colt style 45apc is much better for self defense than a 9mm.

I use Hornady Critical Defense. 9mm is plenty good for defense.
