I have a local sporting goods store that sells the UMC (Remington) 250 round mega packs for $78.

Just want to stock up a few for summer training. I've used this before with zero issues and always in the 180g

They now carry 165g and 180g. Any direction on which one is "better".
I shoot these in a G27, G23, and G22.

BTW - my PD ammo is 165g Gold Dot...Did I just answer my question:wavey:

I don't even pay attention to the lower ends. Higher end always, PD or target.

to me the 165gr. seems like a snappy 9mm. the 180gr. seems more of a push ala .45ACP but thats the way i feel it.

i dont care for it.
