    I have tried the plus P's in a couple of my .45's. Noticeable increase in recoil and follow up shot's. I used them up for target shooting and went back to standard pressure. I figure I shoot them well. And it has been putting the bad guys down fine almost 100 years. It will do fine for me.

    HST's? HST's are a newer round. Less than ten years old has definitely not been around a hundred years. I would not expect HST +P to shoot the same as another +P brand.

    I'll go out on a limb and say I assumed he was referring to standard pressure (non +P) loads in general, and not HST in particular.

    I tend to agree that for .45ACP, standard pressure 230gr HST will definitely get the job done. Recoil and ease-of-shooting issues aside, should I ever have to discharge my weapon in a confined space, I can't help but think it might be the difference between sore, ringing ears for a few days, and actually ruptured eardrums from the +P load.

    OTOH with the smaller 9mm round I'm thinking maybe I'd want a bit more "insurance" and use the +P 147gr round. I bet they'll be awfully snappy out of a G26, though!

    Ahhh so I see you are probably right. That said standard pressure is what I use in my .45, shoots the same as the Brazer Brass I practice with

    So why would Federal charge more for older technology, and 30 fewer rounds?
