Default Hottest standard (non +p or NATO) 9x19 parabellum?

I'm interested in knowing what is the hottest 9mm standard load,preferably in JHP format but also curious about hot FMJ as well.

Not really interested in manufacturer specs unless its "real world" guns they use to test and not some extra long test barrel.
Some of you guys like to play with chronographs,and thats the information I'm really after.

Wrong goal. Pushing book limits with handguns is meaningless in effect and hot loads pound the machine for nothing.

Perhaps I need to clarify-

Manufacturers load their ammo differently.

I'm curious to know who makes the "hottest" SAAMI standard load,as per actual chrony tests.

I'm not interested in pushing any limits,I just want to know who makes the best bang for my buck within the scope of standard factory loaded ammunition.

I dont understand what your after. Fastest lightest bullet? A fast miss is still a miss, id be more concerned with POI and feeding.

I like standard loads, it doesn't tear up my guns.

Cor-Bon has some of the hottest in several calibers but not all..135 and 155 in 40 caliber are excellent and proven real world performance man stoppers. Same is true in the 9mm in 124 grain again in Cor-Bon. Personal belief that even a weapon not rated for +p could in fact handle it in a crisis situation, maybe ruining the gun but I don't feel it would come apart in your hand either. A steady diet of hot ammo will loosen up a weapon real fast, particularly small ones like the Ruger LC9 and similar. Shoot standard loads at the range and carry the hotter rounds for self protection. What ever you carry make sure to shoot approx 100 to ensure no FTF.

I went back to the original question and I see that I did not read it correctly...9mm Fed Hydra Shock standard pressure in 124 Grain. I have info on other calibers although not handy at the moment.

g23shooter,some chrony tests would be cool.

partdeux- I've seen S&B ammo,heck I've fired a lot of it in my time,but I've never seen the police version?

I'm now curious.

Do you have any links that I might go to to check out some police loaded 9x19 from S&B?

that would be cool too.

Thanks guys.

I had bought it at Cabela's when it was on sale. I ended up selling it to a co-worker, wasn't sure my XDm was going to like it.
