    please dont misunderstand, my intent was not to suggest that the low recoil rounds arent adequate. my only input is to state that it wont be "equal" because you cant have it all. when somebody figures out how to id love a .44 with 9mm recoil.

    fwiw,

    corbon 165 gr - 1250 fps, 573 ft. lbs.

    granted thats a +P load, i couldnt find a standard load in 165gr (not saying one doesnt exist, only that i couldnt find one) other than the corbon +P and the federal low recoil. a lighter bullet will always have less recoil and higher energy numbers. i still havent figured out just how important numbers really are. for example, a 165gr. corbon produces more energy than a 230gr corbon (950/461), but i trust the 230gr more.

    rocky: I have a Glock 23 and a Kahr K40 and I use Federal Premium Personal Defense 135gr. JHP Low Recoil .40 S&W ammo. It is accurate as hell, gives you great triple tap capabilities, and has great F.B.I. ballistics. http://www.angelfire.com/co3/markcolo/testing.html
