    Greetings
    Just thought I would share that this stuff is very very accurate. Out of my G-19 and 26, Mild recoil not to loud and very accurate.I am not sure of the Ballistics of this round as far as expansion. But I understand they have some pretty decent street results from, I believe the Illionis State police. (Not 100% sure of that)
    That is all

    The Border Patrol, I.S.P., Secret Service, and several others carried this load in one form or another. Remington, Winchester, and a few other companies made their own versions of the load. Everybody that used it seemed happy with the results. I prefer the mid-range 9mm's at +9/+P+ velocities for better penetration. The 115gr. +P+ rounds will sometimes give shallow penetration (about 8"). It works but I would rather have the bullet go 12" or better. If you have really large guy with lots of clothes on 8" might not reach vitals. I like the idea of deep penetration no matter what the angle of the bullet. But I would not feel undergunned with this round. The "Ranger" 115gr. +P+ round does not have the sharp talons of the other Ranger loads BTW.

    I agree,In fact my carry round is the speer GDHP 124+P or the Winchester 127Grain+P+. Ijust found the 115 grain very accurate out of both my G-26 and 19

    I had some but traded them to buddy whose BHP loved them. My G19 loves the Speer 115 gr. +p+ and my SIG 228´s love BPLE. I just couldn´t get the groups I wanted in my particular guns with the Win. +p+. Go figure. Notwithstanding, it´s a helluva round.

    Someone enlighten me. What does the +P or +P+ stand for?

    Thanks,

    +Pressure

    +P is SAAMI regulated.
    +P+ has no regulation or "max acceptable pressure", and you are trusting the manufacturer not to have been a retard. IIRC, the 127gr +P+ was loaded to around 43000 or something. Do not quote.
