Ok, What are you referring to with 122 gn vs. 124 gn?????
Bullet weight? What caliber? 9mm? 6.8 SPC? 7.92x33?

If both are FMJ, I doubt there will be a noticeable difference in penetration in anything you might shoot at. 2 grains difference? I bet there's normally more than 2 grains difference in cheap surplus ammo anyway. Welcome to TFL

Agreed. As long as it's FMJ you won't see any difference. Bullet material will make a difference. Steel core bullets are generally going to penetrate more in most cases.
