    Mas-I'm sure this has been brought up at some point but I couldn't locate it. I'm considering buying a "fair share" of the Federal 115 gr +P+ ammo at a good price. I know many moons ago it was considered one of the top five, so to speak, best rounds for SD. What's your take on it now...has it changed over the years to the point it's not what it use to be or are folks so enamored by heavier bullets today?

    In its time, the 9BPLE earned a reputation as one of the very best 9mm loads on the street. Neither the load, nor human anatomy, have changed since. There may be some newer loads that I and others prefer, but this is a load that I for one would still carry with confidence.

    best,
    Mas

    Many thanks. It did really good in the G19 from an accuracy standpoint and feeding was...well, great so, I think I'll buy a few hundred or so.
