Any noticeable difference between Acme 124/125 gr NLG RN?
« on: November 08, 2019, 10:46:23 AM »
Bought a 100 pack of both, loaded with 231, then shot over chrono.  Can't really tell any difference in accuracy, 20 yd max but mainly 10-15 yds for realistic SD range.  Bullet profile allows for a slightly longer OAL for the 124s but both are easy loading in my Dillon 550.  Anyone prefer one over the other?

I prefer the 124 since it’s more readily available. It also shot well with my sig pistols. I loaded it with 4.0-4.1 Gr of win 231 and sport pistol at 1.120.1.125 OAL.

I'm loading a little hotter, 4.4 gr - 1.12 for the 124 and 1.10 for the 125(used P01 barrel to make sure CZ friendly).  Chrono'd 15 rds ea, avg 1094 fps for the 124 and 1051 for the 125 from a Glock 19. ES and SD about the same for both, not that it really matters to me.  Didn't notice any difference in accuracy.  Thinking of ordering the 124s since I can load longer due to ogive.

I only load that much to meet minor power factor for USPSA plus accuracy of course. Less recoil gives me ire control of the gun and enables me to drive it back on target quicker.

How about some links to the bullets you're talking about... in the first post.

Thanks.

They came in a nice wooden box if you buy in 500 or 1000 count. I still use the wooden box for storing little screws and what not.

 I had since moved on to using RMR 124 Gr match winners for my pistols and 124 Gr Precision Delta JHP for my MPX to prevent lead buildup on the compensator.



[Thank you for providing what the OP did not.]

I also load the PD 124 JHPs.  Great bullet.  Loaded 1000 last weekend, also with 231.
