    The 180 HST is what my G22 is loaded with. A good shooting easy handling round, for me. I don’t see much difference between the .40 in the G22 and my Gen3 G17 shooting the +P or +P+ 9mm I often shoot.

    When I shot in GSSF, I was told I had to abandon .40 S&W in favor of 9mm if I ever wanted to get the magic 500 score. So I bought a G19. I fine tune my reloads for maximum accuracy and minimal recoil. I noticed that to get the same accuracy as my .40 S&W loads, my 9mm loads had the same recoil. My scores stayed the same.

    In a compact Tupperware, the subsonic 180 gr. HP is the way to go.

    A little more "snap" than a 9mm... but more of a push... and, well... more.

    Gold Dots do about the same. Since I have a thousand of them that's what I use.

    My Shield .40 works great. Quite snappy.

    Got a FNX40 & a HK P30L both in 40sw. Both shoot nice and crisp, dead on. Load both also. My carry round is Barnes Tac-XP 140 gr. FNX also shoots the .357 sig. I bought a xtra barrel. The price of 9mm ammo now a days. Its almost not worth getting a 9mm. Its definitely not cheap to shoot.

    I prefer the .40 over the 9mm. At some point, I just kept buying 9mm, and then I sold the one .40 I had. I was cleaning out the safe the other day and found a box of .40. Thought I could sell this. Nah, so I bought a Glock 22. Now the Glock feels overwhelmed with all the Sig 9mms, so she's asked for some friends of her own caliber to hang with.

    Funny... careful tyros may pick up on that and make it a standard, like the .45 LONG colt!
