I tend to ignore the power factor numbers when going to a heavier bullet. Typically, the increased weight will result in deeper penetration. Yes, there are exceptions but in the 40 S&W and loaded to hot loads, I believe the heavier bullet will provide the best penetration from the .40 cal handgun. In reality, there isn't much difference between them in a handgun becuase we aren't talking about much of a difference in velocity like a rifle round.
