Default What's some reasonably priced 9mm +P?

What's some reasonably priced 9mm +P that people here cna recommend.

Want to order some more ammo as I am down to 1500 rds of 9mm.

Looking for a little extra oomph if its FMJ,CMJ, TMJ or a reaosnably priced JHP would be fine too.

I have bought CCI Blazer and Speer Lawman TMJ in the past but looking for a bit more velocity OR a JHP so I can use my training ammo as carry ammo in a pinch.. this without breaking the bank.

Thoughts?

Does this look like a good deal? It's been awhile since I've bought 9mm.

For US made HP Brass cased.. yes its good.
I was eyeing that ammo but its sold out.

Last nite I researched some more and found that Brown Bear 115 gr is appearantly hot quite hot which I like:

Had 3 light primer strikes out of 60 rds in this test.
Tula did better than Brown Bear in that test to my surprise with a good balance of load, accuracy and relaibility

Another Brown bear is hot test:

I guess the weapon needs to be rated to handle it or bad things might happen.

i'm not sure any guns are rated for +P+?
You can get a +P rating but since +P+ has no SAAMO standards I do not think its possible to have a gun rated for it?

The MP9 is very durable so I could risk... it but I think I would be happy with +P

Take the box of +P+ and X through the last +. Voila, you have +P.

I'm joking of course.
