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.

Just found a letter from Federal:
The XM9HA is a product overrun from a government contract it is loaded
with our 147gr HST bullet with velocity at 1180FPS and 479 ft lbs of energy.

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

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
