    I've been trying to find some ballistics of the 115 & 115+P jhp out of the carbine, any of the 9mms. at 100-200 + yrds. I love My Pistols!

    Welcome to the forum!



    You're really asking a question which is difficult to answer as there are so many variables in bullet shapes and powder loads.
    Buffolo Bore probably makes the hottest 9mm and it drops almost 34 inches at 200 yards.
    Some here that have shot the carbines at 175-200 yards.

    If 200yards is your goal, you've got the wrong gun. A 9mm carbine is NOT a 200 yard gun at all.
    100 yards is within its reach but that's pushing its limits of accuracy.

    Yeah, pretty much. I only shoot mine at 50 or less. The simple TruGlo red dot on it was intended to hit human sized targets, and if they were more than 50 yards away, I would try to avoid them.

    Everything after 100 yards you're just lobbing lead...pretty much.

    This more what it's for:


    Although this guy claims some pretty good shooting at 200 yards


    Different guy at 230 yards:

    At the club I belong to, I've had some surprisingly positive experiences with my 995TS. Shooting from a bench with factory sights, I've found it to be consistently accurate out to between 125-150 meters shooting at 4" and 6" steel targets. It had enough punch at 200 meters to knock down a 12" steel pig target. It far exceeded my expectations for an inexpensive, pistol caliber carbine.

    If it's of interest, there is a couple of YT vids on long range effectiveness of the 9mm: [ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wXFf34bB34"]Part 1[/ame] and [ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZM6BOjsFx4M"]Part 2[/ame]

    The gist isn't of the accuracy but rather how well a 9mm will penetrate at certain distances. Now of course the term 'kill' is subjective and depends on a wide variety of variables. But it was interesting to see that even at a distance of over 400 yards the 9mm was still penetrating over 2 inches of wood. Wasn't out of a 995 but rather a Kel Tec Sub-2000. But they have comparable barrel lengths so I'd expect similar results as far as penetration.
