I feel that if your shooting anything longer than a 4" barrel you should use 165 gr to 180 gr when talking about .40 s&w loads for self defense. But in a residential area like mine where the mass majority of the homes have thin walls, believe the XM40HA will serve a great purpose for home defense. Over penetration should not be a factor when considering rib bones, mussle tissue, skin and clothing to be your only targets.
sound like the 135grn HST is your ticket
the PDX1, that's not the white box stuff though. it's about $1/round, or $20 for 20 rounds.
