What are some of your favorite ammo for the Millennium?

My millennium loves the Federal Hydrashok JHP. It's accurate and never had a jam while using it...........ran about 500+ thru so far............and still going.
2nd choice is Cor-Bon.

Does not handle the CCI Blaser too well.............had about 50% failure.......in the ammo itself..........I think I had a bad batch.........dead primer or maybe they forgot to put powder in them. I was not very happy with CCI. It could have been a defence dituation and I would have been in bad luck.

Mine can digest any number of loads well, but the Russkie ammo Silver Bear in 115gr. and 145 gr.JHPs work the best, and as goofy as it is, the best accuracy loads as well. The hollowpoint does oddly enough deform,but not quite the way American ammo does and not as dynamic. However the deformation would cause wider wounds. Much better than ball ammo by a long shot.

WWB,Remington, and Speer 115 gr. JHPs in standard pressure loads are only a hair behind the Silver Bear.

Since the WWB does have a JHP that works ( yes there is a version with a JHP),old as the design is, and the Remington has an ogive closer to hardball, these two can get the job done defensively if needed.

I do keep more updated ammo designs around, but use them mostly in the other pistols.

Since this state does not have CCW there is no reason to put premium ammo in a gun that will not get used for carry or home use that much.

The state was due to get CCW when the whole thing fell through. I still use this a lot as a fun gun or one for checking some things out that go bump in the night. Can carry the gun concealed to the front door descretely if needed.

PT111s are nifty guns in my book. :)

Which caliber Millennium do you mean? .45, I carry Gold Dot 185 grain. Practice with Lawman 185 grain. I find that for me the 185 grain is better for short barreled .45s. Blazer is really meant for practice and not for carry. Different brands may do better in different calibers.

I have yet to find any ammo that my Taurus pistols won't eat reliably. I shoot a lot of Wolf for range use...

For carry in my PT145 I am using one of three types:

1. Cor-Bon Pow'r Ball
2. Winchester Ranger SXT 230-gr
3. Federal Tactical HST 230-gr

For range time I use whatever is cheapest in FMJ's at the time...usually Blazer Brass or Magtech.

When I do carry the PT145 its loaded with 11 rounds of Taurus HEX pure copper ammo. I prefer the 185 Grain in the short barrel semi-auto's

Anyone chrono 230 HST's through a PT145? I was wondering what kind of velocity could be expected in either +P or standard 230 HST's.
