    Figures. I think the bonded rounds were dropped as well.
    The first indication a bad guy should have that I'm dangerous is when his
    disembodied soul is looking down at his own corpse wondering what happened.

    I'd like to see 147 gold dots. Not because I think they're better but because it's what I have for 9mm SD.

    I think this video does a pretty good job displaying the same type of data. Not sure at what distance the handgun shot mimics though.

    I sure am looking foward to "testing" .357 and .38 short barrel Gold Dots in milk jugs, also .38 125 grain Remington SJHP.

    Interesting that the 100 yard velocity from the Glock 19 is roughly equal to the muzzle velocity of a PM9 or P365.

The Speer 124 Gold Dots remain good alternatives if you canít find the Federal loads or it shoots better for you.
    SG Ammo has LE9T1 in stock now.

    Excellent point.

    Going from a 4" barrel (Glock 19) to a 3.00 - 3.25 inch barrel (Kahr PM9, Sig P365) carries with it a substantial "penalty" in terms of reduced velocity that increases the probability that a JHP may not expand as much as we might want.....or perhaps not at all.

    Thanks for the reminder. I'll stick with the Glock 17 and 19.
