    In many cases thick cloth or clothing like denim will actually inhibit expansion and increase penetration. For this reason I do not change carry round from summer to winter because I think is pointless. Use a round with adequate penetration all year around.

    Exactly. Which is why I don't understand why so many people go to a HEAVIER weight in winter. Seems to be the opposite of what you would want. Now going up in caliber I understand (though again, why not just carry that caliber year-round?)

    It's just that I do not have a lot of faith in the 115gr bullet penetrating enough thru winter clothing. :upeyes:

    I'd go with the Gold Dots in any weight. If I were to carry a 9mm, it would be the 124 +P. It's a round with a fantastic track record to say the least.
