Since I believe the Ammo Can Forum is restricted to ammo for the 1911, I will post this here.

I have a Kahr K40 as my everyday carry piece. I haven't been able to determine, with any confidence, what the best ammo for it would be. I know the short barrel (3.5 in.) effects velocity but would that effect be greater on a light, high speed bullet or a heavy low speed bullet? Point in fact, would I be better off with, say, 135 gr. Personal Defense hollow point (which I believe are high speed) or a more traditional 180 gr. hollow point (which I believe are of a lower velocity). Or, would the short barrel effect them both proportionally?
