Yea I think Hornady was not available at the time of this test. I don't think we would have learned anything different. It seems to me that all major companies bullets expand as advertised and that bullet placement trumps brand and weight of a 9mm bullet. I am strange in that I own like 10 9mms and I load each of them differently. I put Corbons & Ranger T in full size 9mms and Critical Defense and Winchester PDX in compact models. I recently went and bought standard pressure 124 HST ammo for the compact guns because I don't care for muzzle blast in excess and extra recoil. I have never used the 147 but I have a box of Ranger T that I am interested in seeing how they expand and penetrate in a medium. "If you have not tried the 124 gr +p Winchester PDX then I say try it. I shot sand with it and it fully expanded to over 1/2 of an inch! If it would do that in sand then I would say in flesh it would work wonders."
What exciting experiences have you have with your carry load?
