There's no arguing that the bullet is what gets the job done. My question is this.... Do you guys shop for the "bullet" as opposed to the manufacturer of the load? Example, say you like the XTP bullet. Will you only buy it in the Hornady Custom loading, or would you also buy the Fiocchi loading because it uses the same XTP bullet? Same thing with a Gold Dot, would you limit yourself to only Speer manufactured loads or would you also buy the Black Hills that uses the same Gold Dot bullet? This all assumes we're comparing same bullet weights, +p to +p, etc.
I'm not shopping for ammo or wondering what you think the best is. I'm wondering what people think of the same bullet loaded by different manufacturers, and whether you consider them with equal regard.
