My favorite “Thumper” (hunting) load in the 9mm has always been:
147 gr. XTP
6.0 gr. Blue Dot
Federal case (once fired)
Win. SP primer
1.140 OAL

The load is anywhere from just under to just over max depending on what data source you look at. Standard disclaimer. Work up to with caution.

Always chrono’s 1000+ f.p.s. in every 4” or longer 9mm I’ve ever tried it in. Also gives an impressive fire ball when fired in low light.


I understand the powder of choice for such applications now a days is Alliant’s Power Pistol but I have yet to try any.
You don't understand, they killed my dog.
