Default +p(+) for last round in the mag ?

i'm curious ... Does anyone here ever pack a really hot round in first for semi auto sd use, considering that the recoil won't be a tactical factor ?? it seems like common sense to me, but everybody i talk to doesn't want to " mix ammunition " ... If your gun runs consistently with hot ammo, it shouldn't be a problem .. so why don't more people do this ?? I know if I had +p+ hollow points i'd be using them as much as i could because i've seen the ballistics sheets for some of those 9mm loads and WOW ... just wow ...
I could understand if you had a hi - point or something not quite so modern, but most guns these days are rated for +p, even pocket guns ...
so what are your reasons for not doing this ? have any of y;all ever tried it ??

May I suggest that you try that setup on the range first.
The idea of keeping the same ammo is that your firearm is sighted in for round "A".

Put it to the test and you will find that velocity will affect the POI (if your POA is the same everytime).

IMO, trying to "guess" where the impact is going to be adds an unnecessay decision should you need to use the firearm.

Hummm, I gotta go to the range and try this out

Not really but it does give me another excuse to get my gun dirty

I tried different brands and loads to see "if" when I started running low on ammo and had to mix my rounds up, what would my gun do?
Everything ran fine but there was little difference in loads, mainly different brands, some ball and some JHP.

why would you not use +P rounds for SD?... my entire stack is.

I use +P in all my CC or home pistols. Why not if its designed to handel them. Why only last round.

I don't see the point in 1 round of +p+ or +p then standard ammo. Keep it all the same IF you have the option. You won't care about "tactical" if you have to pull that trigger IMHO.

I've always shot WWB all my life and anything more snappy is gonna throw me off ... you can get a .40 kick from a 9mm with home loads if you're pushing it ...
when i'm thinking about sd, I'm thinking inside 25 feet .. accuracy doesn't really matter, unless they have some kind of ballistic vest on : )

because with major semi auto rounds the recoil wouldn't matter on the last shot unless you have delicate hands so you could pump up the pressure on the last round without worrying about follow up .. genius ..
