I ended up ordering the RA9B from SGammo. If the HST would have been more available and close to the same price I would have probably chose it. At this point in time the RA9B and RA9T seem more plentiful.

I think that would qualify as +P if not +P+. What do you think?

Haven't seen any information that confirms that. Just from the numbers it would seem so, but I've been wrong about this kinda stuff before.

My two sence is HST is a slightly better round because it seems to expand bigger and more reliably. I love the ranger t cause it's just a bad ass round but I have seen one or two more cases of failed to fully expand than I've seen from the HST.



Also I've never seen a PDX expand like a RangerT so something is different.

I like RA9T 147 it works real well in short barrels per ammo quest.The real game changer is the Winchester Train and Defend ammo.The 147 loads tested real well
