Besides the obvious need to buy different ammo, frangible/NL seems to be TWICE the price per round

What is a 'best buy' in 223 and 9mm of this kind of ammo?

What effect will the different weights have?

What other considerations?

I would consider how important the class is vs. The extra cost.

I'm currently checking out the other locations the class operates in

Wut Range? Never heard of this in FL.

Ok, not sure of the range name itself, but Deep Woods USA is referenced in the class info.

Apparently the range operates within a national park.

I had to scramble for a class that required frangible ammo as well, was able to get some fiocchi. I think SG sells frangible 223

Frang ammo is indeed expensive and it sucks when we tell people that its needed for a course. We generally point people toward Bite The Bullet out of NV as we have had good luck with their product over the years. One thing to watch is that with slower twist rifles, you may see key holing at room distances with frang since the twist rate has more to do with projectile length than sheer weight.
