    I use the there 115g 9mm in all my 9mm's. I have been very pleased with the reliablility and accuracy of these rounds. The smallest gun i use in in is a Glock 26 and they work great. I have also used their .40 and .45 rounds and was pleased with them as well. Not sure about them in your particular gun but mine love them.

    Straight from my manual:

    I will be using this a a defensive round, so it will only have about 75 rounds ran through it and then maybe 1 mag a month just to be sure nothing changes. I shoot 115gr WWB for target shooting.

    I've used their .40 rounds before and they are fine.

    Just food for thought, the 147 gran rounds are less affected by shorter barrel length.

    I thought the 147gr's suffered most b/c the smaller barrel could not get them to a high enough speed to properly expand...

    Oh and what all you got done to that subbie? I have a SRT-4 with exhaust, WGA, and larger intercooler. Best I have ran is a 8.3 at 88mph with 2.02 60'(only have 1/8 mile around here)

    Thats with the older bullet technologies. Modern 147 grn are made to expand at the lower velocity. As I have been told the heavier 9mm's use less powder and actually get up to speed faster than the lighter ones. Something like that.

    My Subie has a full turbo back exhaust, tuned to 16 max psi, springs and various little non performance things. It should run low low 13s with better gas (non 91 piss) and a good driver. I was saving for a bigger turbo, probably 18g, and a STi top mount intercooler... but bought a Ruger Super Blackhawk and a Springer 1911 instead. Heres a pic or two.
