    9mm 147 gr. +p

    Has anyone ever seen or heard of ammo in 9mm caliber that is +p? It just seems like this would be a good combination of features (weight + velocity), but I haven't even heard of someone doing something like this. Is it because at that weight, the bullet is too long to increase the pressure much? Who knows, I may start a revolution here

    Thanks all!

    Doubletap makes it. I haven't tried it yet, but probably will soon as it seems like a good idea to me too. Here is the product link:

Am about to order another dozen boxes, to round out the final testing before deciding on my carry ammo. At the moment, it's the Fed.HST, but if testing pans out then I'll likely opt for the DoubleTap rounds. Seems like great stuff.

    I purchased the Fed.HST rounds at Cheaperthandirt.com, and the DoubleTap rounds directly from DT.

    I think Buffalo Bore makes some 147 grain +P+.

    I think if you go 147 grain you will have to practice with them because the 147's should shoot lower than lighter grain ammo.

    IMHO , using heavy bullets in unsuppressed 9mm pistols
    just negates some of the positive qualities of 9mm.
    (high velocity and quick expansion )

    +P ammo adds the negatives of high pressure and faster
    wear on the gun.

    If you need more oomph , step up to a .40

    Here's a concise little article on + P ammo---
