use the 155 hydrashoks for duty

i have always been a light and fast advocate for all calibers. actually any load in 40 using the 155 is going to be good. i carry (no choice) federal 155 hydras out of glock 22 (all issued) and feel comfortable. in a former job my weapons were a beretta 92fs and smith 3914 loaded with 124 grain 9mm hydrashoks. about nine years ago. i requested federal make the 129 38 bullet into the 357 mag loading. they said it would be a custom order and alarge purchase would have to be made. well you can expect low muzzle flash, consistent velocity and uniform expansion. (these are from my own personal tests) out of the 155. its a good round. carry with confidence

thnx for the reply.based on your exp. do you think the 135g is to light or should i go with the 155g as you said.im also going with American Eagle 155g fmj range ammo.i would like to shoot what i carry but for now the cost is prohibitive until i get set up for reloading.should i go with the two matching bullet weights for personal carry and range?
