ammo

I have found that many people just start buying ammo and look only at price, well over the years I have found that you should use what you shoot and shoot what you use. Believe me every brand of ammo will print different. When you get your weapon there is a break in thats when you find out which fodder is best for your weapon. In my case my XD likes 165gr jhp from Tap and Hornady but I worked up a hand load that prints almost the same. Right now at 15yds 5 shots I print at .58 and .66, but remember when you have your weapon by your bed or on your hip use factory loads, its easier to defend in a shooting shadowwalker...theres my nickle for the day...Be safe Stay alert
