I like the Remington Golden Saber 124 grn +p, but my supply is dwindling and I need to replace it. I can't seem to find the +p online or in local shops anywhere, if I can find Golden Sabers anywhere at all for that matter. So, what load do you like in 9mm, and/or where can I pick up the 124 +p Golden Saber?

During winter months for more penetration I carry the heavier 147 Grain Winchester Supreme round. During summer months people don't wear heavy clothing so I carry the lighter 124 grain Remington Golden Sabers. edited: had time to come back and edit post for clarity.

Ranger +P+ 124gr or Lawman +P 124gr

Performance-wise, how does a 9mm+P load stack up against the .40? I have a Sig P226 in 9mm that never sees the light of day as far as daily carry but would like to for the hi-capacity mags I have for it. I carry the Sig P229 in .40 S&W.

I've been carrying CorBon 115 gr +P for years, but I think I am going to switch to a heavier +P round.....maybe something in a 124 grain.

Just remember the Speer packed loose in 250 round boxes is range ammo only.

I heard that but after running hundreds of rounds of the 165gr .40S&W & the 124gr +P 9mm with NO problems I wonder WHY that would be the case ???

There were problems with the primers. It was problematic enough for Speer to deem the ammo unsuitable for law enforcement. I wouldn't risk it myself, especially since I can just buy a couple of boxes of ammo that I know are good and use that for when it counts. The bulk stuff is great to practice with, although I'm not sure the price is really that good. $10/50 for ammo Speer said they sell at a "substantial discount" may not be that great of a deal.

Winchester Ranger 147Gn RA9T If that is unavailable, then anything from Black Hills, CCI, Georgia Arms, or Pro-load, loaded with the 124Gn Gold Dot Bullet.

Winchester Black Talons Are these old school or something? They used to be the sh*t but no one mentions them much on these boards... I need to start shootin my 9 more! For some silly reason I think that if they are banned(ish), they gotta be good, please show me the errors in my ways. gilfrd

Here's my theory on this. If I remember correctly, they stopped selling ammo that actually says "black talon" on the box about, hmmmm 5 years ago at least? Which means that any ammo that you find that says "black talon" is at least 5 years old. Which means that you're trusting your life to ammo that's been sitting around for 5 years? Personally I don't like to carry ammo for more than 6 months, let alone 5 years. Try the Rangers, they are the same thing IIRC.

I carry Federal Classic 147gr JHP in mine. But I'm thinking of changing to either Cor-Bon, Winchester SXT, or Federal Classic 124gr Hydrashock +P. Of course I just use the cheap FMJ while at the range.

147 gr. Ebony Claws. BigDozer66
Link Posted: 6/27/2003 12:04:00 PM EST
I like either 147 Fed. Hydra-shok or for up close and personal Glaser. The Glaser doesn't do much for hard shell penetration but it sure as hell makes a good wound channel.

They changed the name to "Ranger XP" and quit painting them black, same quality. Put away that sissy gun and get a .45![flame] and please spare us the 9mm hp > .45 hardball bs! stoke your .45 with hp's too!

...not to mention how the "Black Talon" stigma could ruin your day in a CIVIL suit following a shooting, no matter how justifiable...

They are now Ranger SXT, same bullets. But Ranger SXT's are cheaper, newer and don't have a bad name. If you have noticed they are also what many of the above people use, myself included. Winchester 127gr Ranger SXT +P+ Edited to add a link so you can see some data on these rounds. [url]http://www.winchester.com/law/help/pdf.eye?get=LE2002.pdf[/url]
