Default CCI Blazer Brass 9mm - 115gr, or 124gr?

Differences are minimal as shown here:

115 gr
Muzzle Velocity 1125 fps
Muzzle Energy 323 ft lbs

124 gr
Muzzle Velocity 1090 fps
Muzzle Energy 327 ft lbs

Notice nearly identical muzzle energy. Is there any advantage of one over the other?

Which would you get (or is it a coin toss)?

Buy the cheaper one and call it a day. It's only practice and target ammo. Only makes a difference if one is more accurate than the other in the gun that you shoot the most. Barrels have different twist rates which may favor a certain bullet weight. Don't know if that matters at most pistol distances.

Get some of each and see if one works better for you. If it makes no difference, just buy whatever is cheapest.

Its a coin toss, but I would get the 124 since its close to the sound barrier and may not crack coming out of your firearm.

I have both and have not felt any difference between the two. I always go with whichever was on sale back when you could get ammo at good prices.
