Hi everyone! First off, I know I don't want this to turn into a 9mm vs. .40 thread about every last facet of the differences between the two calibers. Please keep wound ballistics, etc. out of this thread. With that said, I'm a USPSA shooter that shoots 2-3 club level matches a year. I get into a few situations with my G17 where I hit a steel target and it doesn't fall. I attempted to "upgrade" last match by using 147 grain JHP (the WWB stuff). I found no difference between knocking down the steel with the 147 grain stuff vs. the 115 grain FMJ cheap Federal Champion stuff that I use normally (I had one steel target that I had to hit twice to fall). The only thing that it I found was cost was much more expensive. That said, does anyone know of a good 9mm load that will knock down steel well. I don't have access to a reloading press (yet) so it needs to come from the factory and be available in bulk. The other option is to get a G22 (local shop has police trade ins for cheap) and keep my mag carriers and holster. I have no issue with the recoil and I'm limited to 10 rounds due to California being retarded and USPSA Production class rules. I see that 180 grain .40 loads generally have no issue knocking down the steel. Anyways, let me know. Worst case scenario I might have to get another Glock! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
