My thinking is more along the lines of having more consistent point of impact and recoil characteristics.gunsmoker said:Some guns have a strong preference for one bullet weight over another.
If you're shooting for precision, tight groups, head shots at 25 yards, etc., the bullet type and weight might matter.
My Taurus Pt111 is significantly more accurate with 124 grain ammo than 115 grain.
Similar recoil characteristics will only hold true if both your carry ammo and the target ammo use the same loads. If you carry 124gr +P, there's no sense spending more $ on 124gr FMJ's thinking that recoil will be similar (unless you search out a +P load that is)...ChipM said:My thinking is more along the lines of having more consistent point of impact and recoil characteristics.
