FMJ verses LRN for practice
OK, since my walmart never has ammo I am thinking of placing a large order by mail order.
Assuming I can find someone that has stock, which would be better for practice. Since I am using it in a snub nose revolver I dont have to much concern for feeding issues.
I can get FMJ truncated or lead round nose flat point.
I can also get lead wad cutters and jacketed hollow points for slightly more.
I kind of believe it makes sense to shoot a load that is simular to your carry load so I have been using the FMJ truncated since its the same weight as my carry round.
What advantages or disadvantages are there to lead verses jacketed. I know that wad cutters are supposedly more accurate, but why? Would shooting a heavier wad cutter make a noticable difference in point of aim when switching to SD hollow points?
