All should function fine for range use. Hornady will empty your wallet faster. Some guns like some ammunition better than others but with that said all should work fine.

On your list, I'd choose Federal for range use.

However, you'll find most folk around here order bulk ammo from Freedom Munitions. Great quality ammo, even the re-manufactured. That's all I shoot at the range. No problems at all.

Out of the brands you have listed I'd use the Federal. Personally for range ammo I shoot nothing but Freedom Munitions reloads.

Thanks, but to me, FM shoots dirty as all Hades! Also, I couldn't get their FN ammo to cycle even after break in. I'll stick with Orr Tactical. Clean and great quality.

I'll agree to disagree on that...It's the only ammo that I shoot in my revolvers because they are so easy to clean and never ever had any issues with it in my autos...
