Question for you knowledagle handloaders.
My "too damn hot for my .45" gun is a Kahr PM9, 9mm.
Been carrying it with 115 grain Speer Gold Dots, mainly because they grouped the best out of the different weights and brands I tried, and they functioned flawlessly.
As I said, I only rely on this compact 9 when I can't reasonalby conceal my 1911 and I've never been very comfortable with it's potential stopping power.
My question is "how much" stopping power am I giving up by not using 124's or 148's, if any, AND is it wise to sacrifice some accuracy for the knock down power of a heavier bullet assuming I find one that functions as releyable as my 115 gold dots?
