I use 124's for practice. 127's in my carry guns.
I used to when Federal made a 124gr EFMJ load (now discontinued).
How long ago did they discontinue them. I just bought a couple of boxes last month.
Ive also heard they have introduced a new and improved version of the EFMJ bullet under the "Guard Dog" banner.
As you mentioned, they no longer sell EFMJ (so if you found them it's the older stuff) and have replaced it with the The "Guard Dog" line. But it's offered only in 105gr and I like at least a 124gr=>.
I bought my last couple of boxes of Federal 124gr EFMJ many years ago...
