Didn't see the original post was 2 years old. The 9mm HST's in 147gr. do not overpenetrate like the older 147gr. bullets. And expand nearly perfectly. Still alot of bad stuff on line about the older 147gr. rounds that often did not open up and acted like FMJ rounds. The 147gr. HST, Gold Dots, and Rangers do very well in performance and are in fact preferred over the lighter bullets by many LE organizations and civilian professionals alike. Good performance with less recoil than some of the +P or +P+ loads. Plus they aren't as hard on the guns or shooters.

I'm always concerned with flash and noise. The 147's are a LOT quieter, especially when fired in the house. ............................. [IMG][/IMG]

124s without a doubt. It's the only weight I use for 9mm now other than my existing stockpile, which includes a few 147s and plenty of 115s of various types.
