I love shooting my Ruger PC9 9mm at 100 yards. I use 147 JHP's.

It seems to be good enough to hit A ZONE of IPSC target at 100 yards almost every time using factory sights.

What kind of energy do You think a 9mm JHP has at 100 yards when fired form a 16 1/2 inch barrel?

147gr 9mm projo moving at 1,100fps has 308ft lbs of energy at 100yds. If zero'd at 25yds, the drop at 100 is 3".
