No, but I heard that they are using uber high pressure loads in their MP5s, in order to be effective.

Tell me if this sounds right.

Back in the 80's FBI's SWAT teams used Winchester 115gr Silvertip in their S&W 59 series pistols. This was the infamous 9mm bullet that "failed" at the Miami Shootout. So did the HRT use the same Silvertip? After this incident did the HRT move to Winchester 147gr JHP like the rest of the FBI?

The best 9mm load made is Winchester Ranger 147Gn (product Code RA9T).  If you cant find RA9T, then 124Gn Gold Dot is an acceptable replacement.
