Default The data tables say.....

The only problem is.........
a little 3.5" 9mm barrel is not going to cut the mustard getting
to the world of the .45 cal. with bullets larger than the 147gr.

Good luck.
The data tables indicate that a 9mm could push a somewhat heavier bullet to 830 fps, which is equal to the .45. If the bullet is built to expand at that velocity (and we know that a 147 grain bullet can expand to 1/2" out of a 9mm) what's to lose?
