    I am curious why change ammo for the seasons?
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    Many years ago I read an article regarding the need for heavier bullets for a little better penetration during winter months when heavier clothing may be encountered. It made since to me then and it's something I've done since. Now is there that much difference between the two loads? I'm not sure but some habits are hard to break.

    Also regarding the need for a load with more penetration during winter months, I find myself leaving the G-19 in the safe and carrying a G-21 loaded with Cor-Bon 230 gr. Sierra's anyway.

    The Gold Dot is a great bullet design! The over all performance of the Winchester Ranger T Series 127 Grain +P+ is in my opinion the choice for the 9MM. A slightly heavier bullet, probably the lowest muzzle flash in the industry, quality control is great and I am approaching .357 Sig speed with a heavier bullet.

    If I could only get the Gold Dot Bullet I would have no quams about using it, but I would chose the Black Hills Version in the 124+P strictly due to quality control and muzzle flash.
