180gn Berrys .40 for fun and match, 180gn Winchester JHP ,40 for SD... both get the same powder drop, OAL, etc.. Just change the bullet and load on... For $26 I got 100 JHP, Daughter has 3 loaded SD mags, and I have 3 loaded SD mags.
Gel test is listed on youtube...

I like anything that goes bang and gives me a 6" group at around $0.25 a round, right now it is Fiocchi 115 gr fmj. Herters is also good when on sale at that price too. Blazer in 9mm has been too dirty burning to suit me.
In SD ammo, I like speer 124gr GD +P, I also like Federal HST 124 gr in either regular or +P. I saw a good report on plain old winchester white box 124gr JHP, cheap and reliable expansion. (although in PD, price is not the determinate. ).

For practice with the M&P 9c, any 124 grain FMJ. For the carbine, whatever is cheapest. My SD ammo is Federal 124 grain HST 9mm +P.

I don't really have much experience and I know a decent bit of people are against reloads as they have the potential to be dangerous if not properly done and checked. But for target ammo I have been using Freedom Munitions 115 grain for my M&P9. They have great reviews so I ordered 1,000 rounds for $180 and received free shipping for my first purchase. I just finished up the last 150 of them today and did not have a single issue with them. Also the ammo doesn't appear to be too dirty but as this is the only ammunition I have used so far I don't really have a comparison. I wish i had more experience to compare them with others to be more helpful but they are cheap, relatively clean IMO, and reliable for me so far so I recommend them.

For practice, reloads.
For SD I presently have SIG ammo in my handgun mags. In the AR I have Hornady TAP ammo in the first mag.

Same thing with my FS .40. I had been using WWB 165gr, moved to 180gr American Eagle and noticed better accuracy right away.
Hydra shock 180's go into my .40 and the Winchester PXI Personal defense ammo.
Unfortunately in mass, the higher grains are harder to come by....seems like 9mm in 115gr is the fan favorite.
