I use 55g exclusively for paper and PD's.......I have for years. It's great stuff....accurate and usually less expensive.
Thanks, thought so: Frankly the ballistic retical in my scope is based on 55 gr. not the 62 grain Israeli stuff I have been feeding my rifle lately. I'm going to pick up a case before it goes back up in price.

I've usually found the 55 grain rounds to be more consistant than mil-surp 62 grain loads that have penetrators in them. The penetrators tend to make manufacturing a truely balanced and concentric bullet more difficult.
Good point, the armor piercing aspect of the 62 grain ball is not something that would be a good thing in a PD round. Drywall doesn't stop much these days!
