    For practice I shoot mostly Berry's plated in 9mm, 40 and 45.

    For self defense practice / inventory I prefer Hornady XTP.

    JHP's. I mostly shoot steel outdoors. FMJ's are a bad idea for that.

    FMJ to practice, JHP to carry. I shoot enough of the JHP loads to establish reliability in my firearm.

    I usually shoot 115gr 9mm "hoolows" because we had a boatload of those bullets so I use them reloading. Need to resupply soon though :(
    Got 1K of lead cast SWC's for .45 I need to start on.

    I shot a lot of Wolf & Monarch steel cased, and CCI aluminum Blazer when I could get the 9mm under $100/1000 and the .45 under $150/1000. Now with the price rises I'm back to reloading. Fortunately I picked up about a two year supply of components to salt away while prices were still low and reloading didn't offer enough savings. Eating into the stockpile now.

    FMJ for target.

    As a general rule, FMJ = targets, JHP & Silvertips HP's for Personal Protection Rounds.

    When it comes to the AK & SKS stuff, (7.62 X 39), it's what ever you can get a thousand for, if you can get a thousand at one time now. I was able to get a thousand once that was a blueish match type w/ a 'nipple end' to the bullett. Saw them once.

    Cast, for competition and practice, hardball for carry. One of these days, I'm gonna find enough HPs to do a test through my guns, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
