The 147 bullets are really long. When you seat the bullet into the case, it doesn't leave much room for powder. Also, the space left for powder is small; so pressure will build very quickly trying to push that heavy bullet.



There have been some 147 +P loads. In fact, Federal has just came released a new HST load. It is

HST 147 +P. It pushes the bullet about 50 fps faster than the standard 147 load. But it will probably be a while before you will see any. :wink:

I carry the 147gr Ranger-T in my 9mms and the 180gr in my .40s.



FWIW, Doc doesn't like the standard pressure 124gr Gold Dot in 9mm, and doesn't like the 200gr +p Gold Dot in .45, but feels the Gold Dot in .357 SIG is the best round in that caliber. Incidentally, he was unimpressed with the T-Series offering in .357 SIG.


It's worth a lot; you said what I should have said!

Thanks.
