[QUOTEReliability, then accuracy, then adequate penetration, then shootability, and last expansion as I see it.
I like Federal HST standard pressure at the heaviest weight per caliber: 230 for .45, 180 for .40, and 147 for 9mm. All are subsonic, but all move at good velocity (850 .45, 1000 for .40, 990ish for 9mm). All get around 12-12.5" in gelatin, do well (for caliber) with barriers, and offer reliable expansion. ][/QUOTE]
Good post, short and sweet.
The reason I love the 9mm, rapid shots are possible, less recoil, you get a bunch of them! Glock19 has 16 ready to go.
