I have to agree with rn-cindy's choice here, the best bullet to use is the most effective. From what I have found(no I don't do my own FBI criteria testing), the Federal 124 gr. HST is the most consistent performer in the 9mm loadings available on the market today. If you know how your bullet is likely to perform, you can use your best judgement on ballistics of the round.

Here's another good option if you're worried about over penetration.

That would be my preference but I think you may have problem when you try to load it in a 9mm gun

I use 147gr. Hornady XTP muzzle velocity is approximately 975 FPS. I also have 115gr Cor-Bon JHP's and they are 1350 FPS, and Winchester PDX1 124gr that are 1095 FPS. Gotta cover all the bases right?
