We don't have issue ammo; you buy your own within certain very broad guidelines. Since my duty weapon since 1999 has been a G19 - and therefore ok with +P+ loads - I've used the federal 9bple and winchester RAT9A +p+ loads pretty much the entire time.

My carbine ammo is winchester's now-discontinued PowerPointPlus 64-grain moly-coated. Great stuff; use it for both duty carry and deer hunting, but am down to less than 400 rounds of it now...

Quit carrying a shotgun some years ago, but when I did, it was loaded with plain old 00 buckshot.

We, and the vast majority of every agency in this area large or small, carry Speer 180 GDHP.

It got smoked at a recent ballistics lab I attended by the Hornady Critical Duty 175gr in the FBI protocol.

I know in CA, they had a huge order of Winchester Ranger .40 ammo. Some of it was returned/declined back to the manufacturer as the budget went downhill. I have been trying to buy them up as they are currently a good deal at gun shows.
