If you are going to have some carry ammo of some sort, try to also shoot some of that at the range just to get used to that in your gun.
Shooting your SD load through the gun is a great idea for testing the equipment. However, if you shoot thousands of rounds of 115gr ammo, i dont feel it is necessary to shoot some or any 124s to "get used" to them. The recoil of your real deal SD ammo will be greater but it's a non-issue imo.

Just out of curiosity if you go shooting 4 times in a week, would you clean/lube your glock after each session? Say 100 rounds per session.

I personally wouldn't. I just get a feel for how many rounds it has/how dirty it is/when the next time i'm going to shoot it is. If i have 200 rounds through it and i plan to shoot 200 more in 4 days, i'm not cleaning it. If i have a big match coming up and it has more than 400 rounds through it, i clean it.

I have gone 1000 rounds plus with no cleaning because i didn't have any terribly important matches. I could feel the slide sluggishly returning to battery during the match so i lubed it to finish, and then cleaned it a few hundred rounds later.

That makes sense, thanks!

How about if you go once a week shoot 75-150 rounds, clean & lube after each session or maybe clean once a month?
