    ...........is becoming avaiable and generating a lot of interest on the Net sites. Looks like there is still a degree of techno improvability in JHP/PT bullets based on early reports. What's your take?

    Don't have a clue where of you speak. I appear to be unaware/uniformed about this matter.

    Appearances aren't always deceiving, eh? Here's a link to the thread on Pistol-Forum.........

    Speer Gold Dot G2 147 grain PT 9mm

    Apparently the FBI is swinging to 9mm Service Duty and Speer got the ammo contract with this round. Pistol bid competition remains ongoing with "The Word" being not too good for Glock's chances.

    Thanks, I'm now an ed-u-ma-kated idiot, on the subject

    I am constantly amazed by the advances in ammo. I remember when "Super Vel" was the "hot stuff", and hot it was.

    I really don't see the need for a "heavy" bullet load for the 9mm. I sometimes think that the FBI keeps trying to "fix" a training issue with new guns and ammo. This seems to be the current trend with all law enforcement.

    Having said that, I would like to see the actual practical amount of performance difference compared to other same weight/velocity types of projectiles.

    Of course as always, regardless of "practicality", new toys are always fun

    Specs for the 147 gr are probably gonna' be the same as far as velocity & energy as for the original bullet. Went to the Speer site to see data on the current ammo and the 147 didn't do as much for me as the 124 +P. Did not know there was a Gold Dot .22 WMR! No hard data out yet on the G2 ballistics unless you know a Pheebie.

    oh don't get me wrong 124 +p is an awesome round... but if velocity is good and ballistics even better and 'if' you can get standard pressure 147 for less then I'm all in....

    Has anyone performed their own jello tests? I have and they are a joke! Cold jello will show poor penetration and warm jello will show good penetration. Simple as that.
    Sometimes I hear shooters talk about how good their ammo is and thats great but how about talking about how good you can shoot. For example, (God forbid) we find ourselves with our weapon out and the bad guy has a loved one in a hostage grip 5 yards away. He says drop your gun or I will shoot! You going to take the head shot? Are you going to have time to aim or turn on the laser? Don't forget to rack a round if you are one of those. What on earth will you do? Will it matter much how your ammo performed in a jello test? Personally I would rather eat jello and train to take the head shot with zero hesitation and zero thought. I am almost there. Denny
