    Hi Mas

    I have a Glock 9mm a G19 and I load it with 124gr +P with either the HST or Gold dot. I know you like the RangerT 127gr +P+ or GD 124gr +P. My question is at one time I heard some negative comments about the 147gr in both standard and +P and now I'm hearing alot of good things about that round, as a matter of fact I know people that are switching to the 147gr for their 9mm and ask why I'm still using 124gr so, I would like to get your expert opinion on what you think about the 147gr round.

    Thank you
    Mike

    Modern hi-tech 147 grain subsonic (HST, Ranger-T for example) is far better than the original (now "economy grade") 147 grain subsonic JHP. That said, I'd still stay with the 124 grain Gold Dot +P if I were you.

    Just one more guy's opinion,
