.40 for new 2011 - opinion on two (or more)

Want to make sure I feed my new .40 Limited a good diet of what the builder recommends:  170pf, 1.180-1.200" OAL. Was looking at Fenix and using their Training and Competition ammo exactly for those purposes.  ORM was also recommended by the builder even though the numbers are a little lower.  

 

My inclination is to just order some of both Fenix types to try, unless anyone here has any other thoughts about it. Is the training ammo good? Is there a brand I'm missing here? Feel free to weigh in.

I have always had decent luck with precision delta, although mainly in bulk 9mm. I did use their 180 gr 40 bullets for years, Still have some in fact. They run fine in 2011's 1911, and a Para I have at 1.180 They also seem to have a sale right now and be $100 a case cheaper than Fenix.

Looks like a good price and, yes, $100 cheaper. Pretty significant.  In the meantime I have some Fenix coming to also try. If there are any other recommendations please don't hesitate.  Guess its time to start getting setup with loading my own...

You can't go wrong with the Precision Delta. 

It is designed specifically for USPSA Limited guns, uses a true in house manufactured FMJ, and is a USPSA certified ammo. 

 

Plus the MatchPacks are awesome.

My recommendation would be to get a box from each, shoot each for feel, groups, and chrono data....then pick one.

 

I'd start with Precision Delta ".40 long" .... price is solid and you can trust that even if you miss chrono by a hair, it's a trusted ammo supplier for USPSA and you won't get dropped to minor.
