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

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:

I tried some boxes of their 115gr, 124gr and 147gr 9mm last weekend. Very hot stuff. Extremely smooth feel during the cycling of the rounds. Comparable in overall feel and performance to the Federal HydraShok Tactical (HST) +P+ in 124gr, but about 30% harder hitting. Loved them. 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 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---
