I have been using 115 Grain Corbon B JHPs as my carry load. I am thinking about getting a bigger bullet.
Corbon B's only goes up to 125.
Does anybody have any ideas on who has a round heavier than 125 in the JHP that would be an equivalent to the Corbon B?

I doubt there are too many makers out there, because the 9mm isn't a round that takes well to being slow and heavy. The FBI made the mistake of trying to make the 9 think it was a .45, and the 147gr. loads developed for them ended up having a poor reputation for putting down bad guys. The 9mm is at its best between 115-124gr. with velocities of 1300-1200fps respectively.
