Any of the four rounds you noted will do just fine. I personally lean towards the 124-grain bullet weight except for the ultra-small pistol I also own that gets 115-grain Fiocchi Extrema XTP.

If I remember correctly the width of the average man's body is ten inches, and the FBI's 12" minimum penetration standard is based on the possibility of a bullet's having to pass through bone or other tissue harder than the soft variety.

Quite a few experts have pointed out that the Illinois State Police put away a lot of violent felons with the 115-grain +P+ round, even in the dead of winter.

It's great to have good choices and in 9mm there are quite a few great ammo choices available.
