    Remington UMC 125gr SJHP +P from WalMart vs.Gold Dot 135gr +P short barrel 38 Special

    Well, I finally got around to doing some testing with some new ammo. I had the speer and the remington and wanted to see what both were like. I was really looking forward to some nice groups etc woth the Speer. Well, to my suprise, I did rather poorly with it, I then went on to the Remington, and this is the result from the first 5 shots I ever fired with this ammo. This was at about 15 feet firing into a dirt hill....



    I again shot some more speer, thinking i needed a warm up, and again I did poorly with it, but a little better than the first time (Sorry, the pans I used for the speer were misplaced so I could not photograph them). So I did a little more Remington, did good with it again. Here is another good group I got out of it (The first one was a flyer... shooter error)...



    Here are all the bullets I managed to recover. The ones in the back are the Remingtons, Speers in the front...



    Since shot placement is my #1 priority, I have decided to carry the Remingons with the tighter groups they were giving me... for now. I may find something better later.

    Just goes to show you that the expensive stuff isn't always the best. Its all about what works best for the shooter.
