I've only been reloading a few months now and all the 9mm and 45acp that I have reloaded have been X-Treme plated RN bullets, 9mm-115gr and 45acp-230gr.. I used these becasue I got them for free. I have used all of them and was looking at the Hornady FMJ bullets which are sold by a local supplier and my local gun shop also carries the X-Tremes. What are the pros and cons to using one over the other? The X-Tremes are cheaper and I already have worked up a good load for them, so I'm leaning that way. These will be used for general target shooting and plinking. All advice and info would be appreciated. Thanks.
