Thanks all. I guess I never really thought about why the different profiles are the way they are. Thanks for clarifying the differences in the profiles. That helps a lot.
A bit of clarification though, you all seem to favor a heavier bullet for all-around shooting (like I asked for). Can I deduce that a lighter bullet will/should recoil less than a heavier one if both are loaded on the lighter side?
Thanks so much guys! I knew this was the place to come to get specific questions answered correctly.
