So I just bought my first firearm, now I'm looking at all the ammo, the different brands, grain, types, ect. I understand hollow point for killing and max damage and solid point for practice. What I am trying to learn/figure out is how do I pick my two types of ammo so that I am practicing with as close to what I plan to carry. What are the features I need to look at? Just grain, or keep with the same brand also.
From firesqurter's post previously: I will be getting a XD9 sub-compact 3" next week with my Christmas bonus.
I can only tell you what I do and that is to practice with what you will be carrying. May be a bit more expensive than practice ammo but you will know what your rds will do with your gun.
Buy a box of 50 good ones, shoot 25 to familiarize with your particular pistol and load your carry weapon and some mags with the rest.
JMO and others may do differently.
