I carried HSTs in my 9mm when I had it and I carry HSTs in my 45. I went with the 147gr +p flavor in the 9 and 230gr +p for my 45. There is nothing wrong with the Rangers, it's good ammo but IMO, HSTs are the best bullet on the market right now.
I did a test with them in 45 and I had numerous rounds come just within an inch!! .996 and .997 wasn't uncommon with 100% weight retention.
If the pain is lacking so is the discipline...
