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.
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?
