    Anyone shooting 135gr 9mm?

    I see FreedomMunitions has started offering it, I would assume others are as well. I'm wondering if it's POI is different from 115/124 like the 148gr?

    I stick with 124 gr, JHP or FMJ, my weapon cycles the same every time, POA/POI is consistent. 124 is also NATO weight, FWIW.

    Its only 10gns heavier, I cant see where it would be a "benifit" over 124...

    I only shoot 124gr.It is what the pistol was designed to fire and it has proven to work.If you want more MV or ME,go with +P.

    Thanks guys, I do appreciate the insight but you haven't cured my curiosity. Inquiring minds want to know!

    I probably don't need to buy ammo for another month+ hoping someone can cure my curiosity before then. Otherwise, I'll have to find out for myself. ;-)

    OK,I'll try to be as helpful as I can.When you go to heavier weight(or lighter) bullets it changes your point of impact,this you already know.There is a tested(proven)weight for the 9m/m and the Germans did the most research and 124gr. became the standard.All other weights are based off the results of these tests.There are some pistols that shoot better with lighter/heavier bullets,but this is the Glock forum and we are only looking at Glock.I do not buy any other weight,I buy on line by the case(1000 rds.) and I do not know if changing brand or weight will save me money.I think I have a "comfort" level with what I shoot and I just cannot change.I hope this rambling post helps,if not,I tried.

    I shoot 124 in my G17.4 for competitions, they are insanely accurate (I hand load so I cannot suggest a box ammo, I run RMR bullets and push them at 1050fps)

    HTH,

    One benefit given same energy levels and expansion rate and total expansion, is better penetration. When diameter stays the same and weight increases the projectile gets longer and sectional density gets bigger. Even at the same energy level the higher sectional density projectile will penetrate more. So if the 124 and 135 expand exactly the same and impart the same energy the higher sectional density projectile will penetrate more.

    Not a bad characteristic at all.

    I am at a loss as to why so much penetration is needed.The 9m/m is a personnel defense round(people),not an anti-tank weapon.If you need that much penetration,go to a 10m/m with hunting rounds.
