    Shot her again, I feel this p30 is not quite hefty/heavy enough for the .40 round. just my opinion.

    a lot of muzzle rise, even with the p30L in .40.

    USP is a much better platform for the .40 round

    I agree.

    I also have a P30 in .40....seems to have considerably more felt recoil than my G22.

    Still love the gun though.
    If you can't be safe...be deadly.

    My brother in law (Phoenix police sgt) came in, and we took my nephew shooting (sig 226 navy) he shot seriously better than either of us, must be the relaxed manner he was in) anyway, his issued piece a glock in .40 cal, shot way better, the recoil was much more manageable.
    The p30 in .40 felt like a supercharged vibrating gun, it shook, and vibrated big time, compared to the glock, which was much more controlled in every shot, too bad really.

    Now, doesn't the HK HAVE. A supported barrel, compared to the glock?

    Either way, the glock was much more controllable.
    The USP IN .40 is similar, but the p30 is just not meant for the .40 cal, throbs, vibrates, recoil is massive. The Hk is too light, and not a good .40 cal pistol. (Just my opinion)

    Were you both shooting the same ammo? Different ammo might have different felt recoil.

    We used 180 and 165 gr ammo.

    I'm going to go with cor -bon 135 gr HP's. They we,em like a great rd.

    180 is poor for a .40, the 165 I've hea4: too much snap?????

    The 135 is best of both worlds.

    Please correct if wrong

    I've run 155, 165 & 180gr.

    Here's a still shot from a video my son shot. Shooting at a 12" steel target at 35 yds (just to see if I could easily hit it). I had a relatively relaxed grip, so it whipped a bit more than normal. Shot is when the slide is at full recoil.

    The USP was designed by HK specifically for the .40 caliber S&W cartridge. 9mm and .45 ACP versions followed, if I remember things right.

    I shoot my USP40 (DA/SA) and P30L LEM in .40 using 155 and 165 grain. They shoot differently, I love 'em both equally, and would never dream of selling either.
