Worry less about the load and practice alot with what you carry, then shoot your threat to the ground, one shot stops are for hollywood.
Only good hits count. I like the middleweights in 9mm simply because I feel it's most efficient in 124gr weights, but the nine has proven to work with heavy and light too. A decent load in 115,124 or 147 will get the job done if you put it in the right place.

It's easy to load, doesn't have a lot of working parts...ya ain't gotta be that accurate, the further away you are the more **** you hit."
