    Primary: Winchester Silvertips: 115gr JHP.

    Secondary: Federal 9BP round, 115gr JHP

    Both absolutely reliable in my BHP, good write ups from various sides of the effectivness argument (Mourgue Mosters vs Jello Junkies)

    Yeah, the milk jug test does take quite a while to set up and even longer to procure the materials. I'll try the wet pack test. Do you let the newspaper completely dry out or is it still supposed to be wet but not dripping?

    Apperently I have a lot of JHPs to test on the wet pack! Hornady 124 TAP, Speer Gold Dots, Corbon 115 +P or +P+, Winchester Ranger 124s, Fed Hydrashok 124, Fed Classic 115. Maybe some PowerBall. I'll look into some others and add them later.

    I am in the process of switching the ammo in everything I use as a carry piece to Gold Dots as loaded by Double Tap

    If I see Triton Quik Shoks or Federal Nyclads I buy them but usually I settle for Hydra Shoks

    I don't carry a 9mm much anymore. But the rounds I had the best results with were the Cor-Bon115 gn+p or the 115,124 gn Gold Dot.

    Those Corbon 115+P's are starting to look real interesting. I definatly need to test those. The Corbon's and Hornady's 124 TAP load are now the rounds I need to test most.

    Gold dots

    I carry gold dots in every thing except
    357mag.In 9mm i use the Black hills
    loading of the 115gr gold dot.At 1300
    fps they're a little faster than
    speer's and have been plenty accurate
    in my MK9,9WVE and a SW99C.At 18 dollars
    a box of 50 they're not expensive.The
    drawback is they're very hard to find
    locally,i have to order them from
    Midwayusa.

    I personaly have seen more tissue distruction with higher velocity out of the compact 9's. The sub-sonic stuff out of my old full size duty gun (P226) was a piss poor performer on living tissue. Having said that I would go for some high velocity ammo that perfomed well from my personal weapon.

    I don't use 9mm anymore, but I did for almost 2 years and I used the same type of ammo that I use now with my .40, I use Federal Hydra-shoks, and so far they are the best choice for me because of there performance compared to the rest of the brands I have tried.

    I have not read all the posts here, and it might hve been addressed. In case it has not, I learned this week from the KAHR rep, Dottie, that the P9 which I have is not rated for the +P+ ammunition.

    I had used some, but had some malfunctions with the round nose diving. The slide velocity is too high for the design of the system.
    She said +P is OK.

    I had gone to the Ranger T 147 grain ammo.

    FWIW.
