    Pricewise, for that, I'd actually shoot lead. Then again, I cast my own.

    I like the 147s. In my 9s they tend to shoot a bit more accurately than 125 and lighter. I don't know what their stock is like, but Zero makes some good 147 JHP that you could try (this is not a defensive round design, but built for target/competition use). If they don't have them available through Roze Distribution, try Powder Valley.
