sgammo has the 115+P+ for much cheaper than the 127+P+. Is the RA9115HP an older bullet design?

The 115 gr bullet is just a plain Jane hp pretty much the same as their white box jhp. ISP used this round with impressive results for many years.

18.15 per box or 171.50 per 500 round case it is a decent load.

Does anyone have a link that would show some ballistics test on the bullet that is in the Winchester Ranger 9mm 115gr. +P+ load? What about the 127gr. +P+? I searched for a while, but came up empty! Thanks!

I like both. I still have around 500 rounds of the 115 +P+ and about 400 of the 127 +P+.

I'd think you'd get better penetration with the 127+p+

Agreed. The hot 115 rounds are good for wound channels but you give up a little in penetration. 99% of the time it will probably make exactly zero difference though. Still, I'd be more prone to carry lighter in the summer, heavier in the winter.

Both. 115gr +P and 125gr +P Cor Bons are old but proven loads as well.

i used to shoot only corbon ammo in all calibers, but found it was seperating a lot, then i changed to DPX, costly but its a copper only bullit, no lead to come loose...
