May be wrong, but I thought heavy and slow was better for pins ???

At 1530 fps, these have 479 ft/lbs of energy,and faster recovery shots than big,heavy bullets.

It's down to who can shoot cleanly the fastest.

It clears them ok, but wondering if I can go higher for insurance.

I am running a 115 in my open gun at basically the same speed you run your 90.  I have fired my open load out of other guns with no issues, but you may not want to try it.

If I was the MD I would not allow you to shoot that load.  It tears up pins. a 22 will clear pins just fine, although they fall and roll more slowly.  If you like the snappy slide action and fast return of sights a light bullet provides, go for it.  Geez, a 115 @ 950fps (109PF) load out of my XD 4" 9mm knocks the pins off cleanly and the gun barely moves.  Runs 100%.
