If I ever live long enough to get back to the range ... surely this weekend ... I plan to try four different HP loads for my new pocket pistol, a Kel Tec P11. But I'm as ignorant as a yard dog to 9mm in general and pocket pistols of any caliber in particular. I'll also be testing my new-to-me S&W 669 subcompact, which is also making its first range trip. It did fine with a couple of clips of Silvertips and FMJs on some tin cans, but is not yet range tested. I tend toward the heavier bullet weights with my M357-A1 and with 10mm, previously in my S&W 1076 and expect the same with my newly acquired Glock 29 (which will also be making its range debut for me). But since 9mm is not as robust velocity-wise as 10mm or 357 Sig, I would think a lighter weight would be best to yield acceptable speeds. At least that's how it seems to me, but again, I'm abysmally ignorant of 9mm rounds. Plus I really don't know what to expect with this little lightweight P11 wonder. I have Corbon +P 125 gr. and +P 90 gr.; Winchester Silvertips (lost the box after loading up my four mags and don't remember the grain weight. Do Silvertips come in more than one weight in 9mm?) and WWB JHP in 147 gr. The Corbon 125 gr. promises 1,250 fps and the 90 gr. promises 1,500 fps. No fps promises on the Winchester boxes. I'll be testing all four rounds to evaluate what I can hit best consistently with, but would also appreciate any advice about which rounds offer the best defensive capabilities and which are too light, too slow or whatever.
