The ammo topic, until we get a dedicated ammo forum

I bought some 9mm +P Hornady XTP’s but that had me thinking. What 9mm +P self defense ammo has the highest ft-lb of energy and what had the highest effectiveness? I like the Federal HST’s but am open to what ever else out there.

Seems like this one I just bought (below) is pretty damn good but probably isn’t the highest energy or effectiveness? Thoughts?

Oh and I really think this Canik I have is able to handle +P+ but cannot verify that yet.

I believe that this might be the avenue your looking for.

Keep in mind that and hotter ammunition that your pistol can run will also speed up wear and breakage possibilities.

Wow! Federal hydra shock had some impressive penetration in that test!

Funny as I was just there looking for .45 LC. Hah, didn’t dawn on me to check them out for 9mm.

They make very nice ammo!
