Hey Battler:
Gotta love shooting them pins!
You've got some good advice from some guys who have BTDT. Bounce back is an issue and a safety concern. That surlyn (or ever what you call it) coating is a tough mother.

For that reason we pretty much insist that our shooters keep muzzle velocity above 800 fps. That seems to do the trick.

So if you are looking for an edge, (and that's all I ever ask for) you could try a lighter bullet weight, just keep the velocity up. ( We did find on the other end that at velocities much above 1400 fps, we saw evidence of shoot through, where not enough momentum got dumped )

I even used a 9 for a couple of years.
