Any real difference in effectiveness of these two 9mm loads? 

I have 200 rounds of Federal HST 124 grain plus P and Federal 250 rounds of HST 147 grain that I can use for my personnel Glock 19. 

Many here seem to like the 147 grain best and I do not know if I should really split hairs between the two.

Little better penetration on the 147 I beleive. I prefer 147 but wouldn’t balk at 124+P if that’s all I had. 

Run some 10 shot groups forvaccuracy and see how that turns out. I always seem to group a little better with 147. 

Plus 147 practice ammo us readily available.

Any preference between the HST 124, HST 124 +P, & the HST 147 from a Glock 26? 

I’d go 147, recoil will be easier to manage in the shorter barrel. Standard pressure 147 HST is my carry load for my BUG (Ruger LC9).

Did anyone do a workup on the 150HST?

Everything I've seen seems to indicate it's a real dud compared to the other HST loadings.
