Please go here and read:

Looking at numbers on a piece of paper do not correlate well for a given bullet's effectiveness.

Way too many variables like bullet meplat, weight, bad guy clothing and on and on.

If you want a good hard hitting 9mm you would be hard pressed to beat the Buffalo Bore 9mm Luger +P+ 115 gr. JHP (1,400 fps/M.E. 500 ft.lbs.)

Buffalo Bore 9mm Luger +P +

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

+P or +P+ ammo can accellerate wear on any gun. However, a few boxes through your Ruger will do no damage at all.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
