Regarding 55 grain...not considering the cost of the rounds, would it be better to practice and rely on a heavier round? (not planning on practicing with $1/round ammo, just wanting to understand the inner-workings of it all).
Bullet construction matters a lot more than bullet weight. 55 grn is a good all around weight.
