I can't really offer a specific answer to your first question because my Colt seems to like everything I have fed it so far. As far as accuracy goes, you should be able to plink clay birds at 100 yards.

what i have found out is that you can get two exact barrels in every which way and each prefer different ammo.



the best way is to by a box of each and have at it and see for yourself which your rifle likes best.

im useing my handloads and just ran out of 124Gr JHP and it was shooting ok i need to re-supply bullets and was thinking of buying 147gr JHP just wondering if the heavier bullet is better?

I use Rainier 147gr plated flat points. Work great in my 635. Win 231 is my powder of choice.

For plain old blasting, stick with 115gr, don't cost a whole lot, 124's good also, though cost a little more (if you load your own).

147's be good for steel or suppressor use, but usually drop like a rock out to 100yd, where the higher velocity 115/124 are straighter flight.
