Very interesting video on HST 147 for short barrel guns.

Thanks for posting that.

This guy has quite a few good videos, but I think he's no longer doing them, that's a shame.

When watching the video, on the right side, one can see his tests on 124 gr, 124 + P and 147 + P.
My goal is to find the ammo which will be my ONLY carry ammo, with good performance and great consistency.
It appears that Federal HST is that one.
To me, very interesting was that he compares them all and from what I saw the difference between 147 and 147 + P is that minimal that (in my opinion) is not even worth the "risk" of shooting +P through my gun. Not only that, but regular 147 clearly had more uniformed, and CONSISTENT performance.

Really good video, thanks for posting.  I currently carry standard pressure 124 HSTs and have been on the fence about switching to standard pressure 147 HSTs.  Think I am going to go ahead and switch.
