    I don't load a lot of 95/100gr bullets in 9mm but they can be fun.
    Either light loads - mouse farts, or crank up the vel for screamers.
    Being a short bullet I like to seat them sort of deep to give the case more to hang on to, not much to grab if you seat them long.

    The ppk I shot had about double the felt recoil of the glock 42 I was shooting at the same session. Man I hated shooting the ppk. Snappy recoil, slide bite, to y sights..... I was done after 1 mag.

    You guys are weird.
    How can you not enjoy recoil?

    I love shooting something snappy like my HSc. Kapow! After that I go to my sig238 and think “meh”

    I shot a HSc .380 Friday. 95gr Lead TC’s over 2.8gr of Bullseye. Snappy but not unpleasant - but not as accurate as 2.5gr of Bullseye and that’s the load I’m going with. I like the HSc’s sights too. The PP in .32 to me has always seemed like the better pistol.
