CZ 83 Ammo choices for Personal Protection ???
« on: July 01, 2006, 06:46:28 PM »
I recently picked up a CZ 83 and wanted to get opinions on the best choice for personal protection ammo for this gun. I know this is a bit subjective but I value the opinions of others who may have the same gun. Does it like one brand over another? Is it partial to a particular weight? In general I have been a fan of gold dots. Are they still a good choice for this gun in this caliber?

My choice has been the Federal Personal Protection ammo, which is a 90 gr Hydra-Shok JHP traveling at 1,000 fps at the muzzle.  Accurate out of my CZ-83.

Mike, the Hydra would feed fine in my Cz83. One the it didn't like was the Hornady XTP. My gun also liked the Fiocchi
            JHP. The ammo was scarce and expensive in my area.
            I'm much happier with my like sized RAMI and cheap/abundant
            9mm.
           
            83s a great guns, so i'm sure that you will soon find a suitable load

Cor-Bon was very accurate out of my 83.

I tried 50 rds of Reed 9x18 Hornady XTP this morning.  Accurate and without any failures of any type.

Well, first I'd like to know which flavor of the Cz-83 do you have.  380, 9Mak, or 32acp/7.65 Browning?
           
            Cor-Bon has a good selection of ammo in many sizes as a generic answer.

Cor Bon DPX is all the rage in .380 now.
