    If you're not shooting past 50 yards or so, it won't make much difference. Beyond that, the 55 gr loads will be better stabilized than the heavier stuff. 62 gr will probably still give decent if not optimal accuracy but it's not like night and day. Get your gun zeroed and try some of each of your candidate rounds.
