So I have been using the gun with the shorter reload but recently have been using the longer reload with more pen. Any suggestions to which one I should use?

Pen gun. The DPM gun used to be better back in the day but now there's just too much armor for it to be effective at all. You can't even pen a Panther with standard on the DPM gun, that's how bad it is.

Perhaps the DPM gun could work well if you roll with the mediums to their flanks and fights against targets that are less armored. I don't own the IS-6, I've actually always wanted to try that DPM gun on it, though. It would be like running the 175 pen 122mm gun on the tier VIII T-34-2, except in place of speed you have much more hull armor.

 

If you plan ahead, about who you want to fight, then 175mm of pen could be enough most of the time, and the dpm could potentially rock on the medium flank.

It's not the RNG, the MM, the diameter of your shell, the thickness of your armor, or the number of premium rounds you carry that counts ultimately; it's the courage in your heart, the calmness in your mind, the hope and faith you have in your team, and the way you use what's at your disposal that truly determines Victory.

Just run the high pen gun. Otherwise you'll get mauled fighting recently buffed tanks, or actually every heavy
