I'd find whatever is on sale at the cheapest price. All of it is about the same, some a little dirtier or more accurate but for plinking I usually use Winchester White Box (WWB)
I use Federal hydra-shok as my main defense round, with a Corbon +P at the top in my G19. I use federal 115gr FMJ's for plinking, just because they are the cheapest where I am.
If you are wanting the same weight for recoil reasons, 9 grains won't have any noticeable difference in recoil.
True, but my department issues 124gr GDHP +P for duty use and has us train with 115 gr WWB. The training is more combat shooting rather than target shooting, so it's harder to tell how much the 115 gr deviates as far as point of impact compared to 124 gr. Just because my department does it, does not make it right...the pencil jockeys are some cheap SOB's.LE (who's departments can afford it) look for training ammo with ballistic equivalents of their duty ammo. Federal and Speer claim ballistic equivalents in their lower cost FMJs. Read more about it here:
As an example, you can find American Eagle 124 FMJ online, cheaper than Wally Worlds WWB 115 gr. and Federal 'claims' ballistic equivalency to their Federal duty ammo.
Recoil wise your not gonna find a factory target load that is the equivilent of your carry load. Speer 124 JHP in +p run about 1155 Fps.For my Glock 26 and Glock 19 I use Speer 124gr GDHP as my defensive load and I am looking for something with a similar weight to use for plinking at the range. I know Speer has 124gr FMJ Lawman, but I was wondering if CCI Blazer would work. (The more I can save per box the better)
^^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^^^^Win. NATO 124 gr. is superb training ammo as it is hot & accurate. No cream puff stuff.
From DannyR's 'list':How's it compare with the RWS Swiss-made stuff I see at Wal-Mart right now?
