Which one will be better out of a Glock 26? Federal HST 147gr or 124gr? Thanks.

Either one will do.

If you're not stuck on Federal, God Dot makes a round specifically for short barrel pistols.
I do believe it's 124gr. Little more velocity.
I carry it in my Glock 26 and Kahr K9.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

A few years back I e-mailed Speer about their short barrel loads. Specifically I wanted to know where does short barrel lenght start. I lost the e-mail but the answer for 9mm was right around 3". You should be fine with any of the Speer or Ranger loads in 9mm out of a G26.

Here's a Speer short vs regular load test.

It's #23611, 124gr +P, good ammo, comes only in the 20rd box. It's in my G-26 and CM9.

Bullet technology has leveled the field very well with modern handgun loads.
