After about 50 rounds of HST 124+P through the G43, my wrist started acting up. 124 Blazer Brass was fine. I’m ok with either 147, or 124. Which has less recoil?

I doubt you would notice much difference with either standard pressure load.

I would recommend getting a box of each and trying for yourself.

HST is a great load - stepping down from +P will not downgrade terminal effectiveness.

Try the 147. I use Federal HST 147 +P in my Walther PPS and find it pleasant enough to shoot. Reason I went with +P is for quite a while it was the only HST 147 I could find before ammo became more plentiful again.

It’s the G43, IMO. It’s not a gun I like to shoot a lot. Maybe 100rds total max per range session.

I still want to check out the newish Federl HST 150gr.

I did a post awhile back wondering if anyone had much info on it yet but did not get any response so my assumption was that it was too new.

Pricey right now and wondering if there will be much difference between the 147gr and this. It is being touted as being a "lower recoil round " designed for the micro pistols.

When I get to a range with the G43, I usually shoot several hundred rounds, because it is a pistol I carry quite a bit. I don't notice a lot of difference in the feel of one cartridge over another, especially after shooting it for a little while.

The G43 is a little smaller and a little lighter. The recoil is felt a bit more; by shooting it just a little, all one feels is the shock to the palm, the recoil, and in my opinion, it's counterproductive. By shooting it a little more, one gets past that and focuses on proficiency, and that's when it begins to be beneficial. It's also when one tends to put the recoil aside and focus on trigger work, front sight work, control, etc, and the issue of recoil, anticipation, etc, begins to take a back seat.

For carry ammunition, in my opinion, function and reliability are the only important issues.

In reality, the recoil is not that bad, but it starts pranging a nerve in my wrist that I have had a previous injury to. I went with the 124. I’ll be doing function tests with it and some 7 and 8 round taran baseplates. I hope they function. I really like the taran products.
