My favorite article on the best choices for defensive ammo selection. It's written by Dr. Martin Fackler who is probably the most known and respected researcher in the field of wound ballistics.

My personal pick would be Federal HST or Speer Gold Dot if you can't find HST.

Speer Gold Dots, Federal HST's, Winchester Rangers.
In my 40's I run all of the above.

ammotogo.com usually has decent prices on those rounds.
