    If you get good results. Don't change. I won't knock someone for not using what I use. We do need to keep in mind that too hard of a bullet can also cause issue just as bad as too soft. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk

    There are those who think if there is a problem, that they have to go harder. And then there are those who think if there is a problem they need to go bigger. I subscribe to the second school of thought myself.
