I agree on the 124.If you have a Luger its long enough to run.Thats probally 60% of the problem with ones that dont feed.

IMHO, the best defensive load for the 9mm would be a 375 grain hollow base wadcutter with as much bullseye as I can get shoved in the case. This is a classic example of the heavy, slow bullet over the light fast bullet theory.

230grain. I like the Frderal hydrashock. but my grand-daddy said the .230FMJ "ball" would knock a german on his ass pretty good. ....Oh you said 9mickeymouse, sorry, I thought we were talking about real calibers. [}:D]

Troy is right about 124gr. 9mm rifles and pistols are chambered for 124gr from the factory, as 124gr was the original loading for the cartridge. Heres a link from one of the vest makers. [url]http://www.secondchance.com/press/standards.htm[/url] The stuff can be found from time to time and here’s a link some current auctions. Don’t be surprised if the final bids are much higher than the current bids though. I saw a 50rd box go for an unbelievable amount the other day. [url]http://www.gunbroker.com/auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=1292603[/url] [url]http://www.gunbroker.com/auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=1293343[/url] I picked up two cases last week, wish I had bought more. Check the 9mm performance data from FTI and you will see that the Speer Gold Dot 9mm +P 124gr. Hollow Point performs nearly exactly like the Win Ranger ammo and it is also used by many police agencies. It also costs a whole lot less and there is plenty up for auction right now. Just click on the link. [url]http://www.gunbroker.com/auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=1311912[/url] I hope this helped you out a little. THISISME
