I can say tho, i like nickle plated brass over brass. But thats what you sacrafice when you go cheap.
But I am down for the 180gr gold dots if you dont care too much about expansion or over penetration. Like stated before they are good if glass, car doors, or light cover is involved. But as far as coats or flesh the 165gr gold dots will do.
I like them all, I just misunderstood what you meant by "traveling", and was trying to understand how that would effect your ammo choice...
I like the 180's.. I don't think there's necessarily an over penetration issue..
