    I'm a firm believer in practicing with something akin to what you use for defense for report, recoil & POA IF you are going to employ the handgun as such. If it's a range gun then it doesn't matter. If the latter it's more economical to buy in bulk off the Internet or reload.

    I would suggest looking around and trying multiple brands of ammo. Shoot some off a bench. See what you and your gun like.

    I haven't shot any Rem UMC in a while, but I bet the issue of consistent shooting is more you than the gun.

    As far as weight...I shoot a heavier load (147gr) better. BUT I know it is just me, not the gun as others have shot my gun with light loads.
