    I've got Corbon 9mm +P 115 grain. But I'm seeing people stating they like the heavier rounds. Thoughts?

    For myself, I like good bullets moving fast of the 124 gr variety. It's pretty much six one half-dozen the other. Pick a load that is reliable in your gun, even a Glock can be picky about certain HP bullet profiles. Shoot a bunch of it for accuracy, reliability and feel. Then consider if you think the overall load offers the terminal performance you want. For me that equals Speer GDHP 124gr +p. Excellent bullet design that performs well, very reliable ammo. Have shot over 700 of them, no problems. I'm sure your choice would be fine. I personally see no point in the heavyweight 147s, if I want a big slow bullet I'll take that in 230gr please.

    115gr JHP's often do not penetrate sufficiently (12+ inches), especially at +P velocities: http://apollo.demigod.org/~zak/firearms/fbi-pistol.php?sort=grade1

    Suggest Speer GD 124+P, or Proload 124gr+P.

    By the way, the Winchester Ranger Talon 147gr was one of the best (if not the) performing 9x19 loads, based on the FBI-protocol testing.

    I like the standard pressure 124gr Speer Gold Dot.

    Big time Ditto on the Gold Dot or ProLoad 124gr +P JHPs!
