    Haven't been able to find the 135gr FHS in 40sw. But, I really like the 155gr & 165gr FHS "tactical" ammo.

    I assume you mean the 9mm

    It's pretty good ammo.

    If recoil is your concern ...

    The Federal "Low Recoil" load is the 135gr HSHP. Sold under Federals Personal Defense line. It has almost as much recoil as the 147gr load
    Federal 135gr HSHP the low recoil PD round: 6.4 ft/lb at .8 lb/sec
    Federal 147gr HSHP: 6.8 ft/lbs at .8 lb/sec
    measured in a KelTec P11

    If you practice with 115 grain, and need something similar that's lower recoil in a hollowpoint ...
    (These go against the "go heavy" theory of penetrating deeper, so if you live where bulky leather coats and layers of clothes are normal, you may need heavy, but in hot weather will easily go through a Tee-Shirt)
    #90250 Hornady Critical Defense® 9mm Luger 115 gr (hollowpoint won't clog)
