Shooting Illustrated's Jay Grazio checks out Smith & Wesson's brand-new Performance Center 686 plus revolver, available to consumers in 2018.

.45 ACP 185-grain Winchester Silvertip

This classic load is a popular self-defense choice. See how it performs after 15 years in storage.

9 mm +P Remington 124-grain Golden Saber

How does Remington's mid-weight 9 mm perform?

.38 Spl. Remington 110-grain SJHP

Standard bullets at standard velocities rarely get any credit, but they are most definitely worthy of consideration for self-defense.

.45 ACP Remington 185-grain JHP

Remington has a ton of self-defense options, but its tried-and-true JHP loads have always been reliable performers.

.380 ACP Remington 102-grain Golden Saber

Ultra-compact .380 ACP handguns are very popular, and this load performs extremely well from these little semi-automatics.

9 mm DoubleTap 80-grain TAC-XP

Designed for use in compact pistols, this load still manages to pack a big punch.

10 mm Auto DoubleTap 135-grain Nosler JHP

The 10 mm Auto is a very powerful cartridge and is often used for hunting by those who prefer a semi-automatic pistol to a revolver. It is also pretty darn good for self-defense.

.45 ACP 185-grain Winchester Super-X Silvertip

Think the old ammo you have in your safe will perform as well as an identical, newly manufactured load? Think again.
