Default XD9 issue

Will 147 grain 9mm have less recoil? My xd9 is 4" and polymer and has more recoil than I like. Before I put in a Steele guide rod and 24 lb recoil springs I was told to try 147 gr bullets

Just purely from an action/reaction standpoint, I would think the more mass being propelled the more recoil there would be; lighter slugs should result in less recoil.

Like it or not, when the chips are down and lives are at stake, an armed citizen can be the "first responder." People who donít like guns invariably rely on people who have guns when their lives are in danger.

In general, the fewer grains a bullet has, the less recoil one will feel.
