Underwood 9mm 115gr +P+ or 124gr +P+

I recently aquired a GLock 26 and have been looking for a good SD EDC load. I was able to get (2) boxes of Underwood 115gr +P+ loads the other night as they became available on their website. I have been reviewing the ballistics of this load on youtube and comparing to the underwood 124gr+P+.

My main concern is overpenetration as i want to reduce the possibility of hitting inocents if I should ever need to take action in a public place. I realize this should not minimize my responsibility for identifying what is behind my target but want to reduce collateral damage even further from over penetration.

I am also weighing that with the desire to get quick follow-up shots and recoil will be a factor as well.

What are the general thoughts between the two loads for both of these factors?

Thank you for your insight.

No experience with either load here, so I'm afraid I can't be of much help to you. 115 grain +P+ has not, historically, been seen as a load that is likely to overpenetrate.

Sorry I couldn't be more help,
