    Hi Mas,

    I know that round is one of your favorite .40 loads. I recently discovered there are two versions, one rated at 1050 fps and one at 1150. Which do you prefer? Which do you think is more popular in LE and has more "street data"?

    Thanks.

    The hotter version, roughly 1140 fps nominal velocity, gets my vote.

    best,
    Mas
