It really depends on what you're going to use them for. If you just want to punch holes in paper, either will do. For competition, the heavier bullet with a lighter load will create a little less muzzle flip. For SD, I prefer the 124 GFDHP. The 124 GDHP seems to have a large following and in my own (not too scientific (water jugs) test, they prove to be everything that this site claims: Pistol Cartridges (9x19mm Luger)

Isn't the 135 grain a 40 S&W weight?

In my XD9-SC I get the best expansion from Federal 147 gr +p HSTs.

I personally used the 124gr +P stuff in my HK when I carry it (Speer Gold Dot).

Also, who makes the 135gr +P 9mm load you are talking about? The ONLY 135gr load I am aware of for the 9mm is the Federal Premium Personal Defense Low Recoil stuff which is nowhere near +P and doesn't shoot very well out of any of my 9mm pistols.

The owner and instructor at TDI here in Ohio has stated that 124 grain and 124 +P are the most common SD loads he sees at the school. I am planning on getting 124 grain +P Dold Dots when i can get them.
