    Depends - in a short barrel, the 124 may be the better choice, where in a standard length the 147 might perform better.

    The 124gr +P is favored by many. I like standard pressure ammunition.

    For SD at 10'...I don't think it's really going to matter. I would choose the lighter grain...

    I always go for the 124+P in a SD 9, but if I were going to attach a Suppressor I'd definitely go for the 147 since most all 9 ammo in that weight is sub-sonic.

    some of my guns don't like any 147 gr. (feed issues). But they'll all shoot the 124 gr. without issue.

    Some guns are kind of finicky about the ammo they'll digest. The tighter the tolerances built into the weapon, the more likely it is to happen.

    Barrel length can make up to a 100fps difference. Check out this site9mm Velocity testing

    The 147gr can be subsonic, but the higher velocity of the 124 is better for expansion.

    That said, I like the 124gr.

    At short range you will need all the velocity you can get to aid expansion.
