    Found a good deal of 140gr bullets, but load data is limited for it. 20 bucks cheaper than the 165gr bullets per 1k. Worth buying the cheaper ones for target practice?

    The cheaper the better for target practice I always say. Unless of course you are talking about precision shooting rather than self defense(ish) practice.

    The cheaper the better. Even if the grain weight is really different and it can affect your accuracy, if the ammo is cheap enough it would be good for mag change drills, holster draws or any activity where accuracy isn't important.

    I just have to ask 20 bucks cheaper than what? It's all relative if you are willing to cross brands/use whatever is cheapest. Plated can be picked up for around 120 per 1k so if it's not 100 bucks or less it's not a great deal.

    If you think it's a good deal, then it IS a good deal as far as you're concerned. Don't let others harsh yer mellow (ROFL).

    Just my two cents. :drunk2:
