    Was shocked to see a few boxes of Winchester white box 9mm ammo at the local Bi-mart! Cost seemed a little high, then I noticed it was 147 gr not 115 like I usually shoot in my Ruger SR9. I passed as I'm a cheapskate until I figure out what 147 vs 115 is going to do for me. Also these were flat nosed. Anybody shot these in their SR9?

    Flat nosed or flat nosed hollow points? You seem to have said both. For defense, I like around a 115/125 HP, preferably well built and going fast. For paper, it don't really matter.

    Regular flat nosed. I think they were close to $20 a box of 50. I did write JHP instead of FMJ for some reason (fixed).

    While I like cheaper the 147 grain 9mm I have shot have been accurate and the recoil pleasant.
