I agree tom. If it was a defense situation and a 995 was the most powerful thing I had, it would be my first choice :groan: I wouldn't shoot a deer with one at 100 yd, but I might a coyote. A pie plate, sure, I would shoot that. :roflol:

A lighter projectile will get you higher speeds..... a tradeoff between bullet weight and velocity.

Certainly you could hit targets at much further than 100 yds if you had good ammo and were a good shot, but like said above I would hesitate to try to take larger game at anything much further than 50 yds and thats with a good shot set up

9mm just isnt designed to be a game round.

Get a surplus Mosin Nagant for 80 bucks, a box of soft tipped ammo and you would be good to what, 400 or 500 rds on a animal like a deer if you are a good shot?

JUST MY .02 cents

+1 to hitting targets out further than 100 yds. I've done a small amount of 200 and 300 yard paper punching with my old 995 and it's doable. But you've got to do some serious arching to get it on paper. :? I've even taken some 500 yd shots at the clubs metal gong with my 995. But it feels like I'm aiming at the moon when I do it! LOL

I've tried mine at 100 yards, but you gotta wait a few seconds before you hear the impact against the cardboard backing (notice I didn't say target) heh.

Even at 50 yards there's a slight delay from A to B. I'd like to try some 115 grain for target use instead of 124 grain.

I can only imagine like Waltham said on another post you would have to lob them in like a Mortar if you were shooting the .45.

Mosin's are great for punishing your shoulder and then when you switch to the 995 you appreciate it so much more.

Yes to that! Someone left a home made steel target at the "range" where I shot the 4095TS for the first time, and I popped it a few times from about 50...pop...ting! You could hear the time between shot and hit easily. They are reloads, so that got me wondering about commercial ammo speeds vs these...so many variables!

Heh, go as light as you can Ajole then your delay will be like my 124 gr delay. lol. Ah well it was really only meant for as a HD carbine anyway. No delay in a 12 foot room :)


....Makes me wonder when these guys using MP5's even Uzi's for that matter, if they experience the same thing or if their pressures are much higher. I guess their ammo is +P or +P+ in military weapons.

I hear that!
I have XTP hollowpoint reloads in 147 grain and 115 grain for SD, they both shoot well, but there were a lot if reports of some types of 147 just not expanding well, and over penetrating. I figure I can alternate in the mag, and get every chance there is to do the job right!
