SPEER GD makes a 124gr +P Short Barrel 9mm ammo that supposedly solves the issue of incomplete burn of powder. I love it, but just cant get it in the 50 boxes that Id prefer.Actually, the 147gr will probably have better penetration, and less % of velocity loss, out of the shorter barrel. Basically, more complete burn of powder.
There's a post in another thread where Winchester recommends their heavier 147gr Ranger in subcompacts for this reason.
Personally, I didn't find the 147gr rounds snappy out of my G26 at all. Very controllable.
Really!!... I have found 147gr golden saber for $16 for 25. Ive never priced gold dots though.I just tried 124gr Speer Golddots and 147gr Golden sabers in my G26 and 229, I am really sold on the 124gr personally, the Golden Sabers were easy to shoot, but I found the golddots more accurate. Plus they are about half the price of the Golden Sabers.
Speer Gold Dot 115 gr. 9mmDoes anyone here have much of an opinion on this load? I would like to try it because the performance looks much like the +P 124, but without the added pressure of that round. Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated...thanks...
