RN vs FP for accuracy

Hey all,
Ive been searching this forum but cant find what I'm looking for.
I've always loaded some type of HP's in my .40 and .44 mag. for plinking/ practice. (Black Talons for home defence/ CCW.)
Anyway, I just recently became a member of Frontsight in Nevada and they require factory FMJ's when shooting at their ranges. I would like to duplicate a factory load with my reloads but before I do I was wondering if there is any noticable difference in the accuracy of FN vs RN slugs.

I've also had a terrible time finding bulk 155gr FMJ's of any kind at a reasonable price. I did finally find this:
But id be interested to know of any other similar suppliers.

I am also interested in .40 cal accuracy loads for other competitions where I can shoot ANY bullet I like. I've narrowed my powder down to 231, bullseye, and AA#5. The goal is to have an accurate round with minimal recoil to stay on target. I currently shoot a Glock 23 and Baretta 96F.

Thinking about getting a 1911 in .45 for these matches also.
Thanks for any help/ tips,

For what it's worth, I have a reloader who provides me with flat-tip copper plated bullets in a standard .45acp load. If there's an accuracy consideration, it certainly isn't noticeable out to 20 yards. I also carry them in the CCW guns. In our tests, they flatten out substantially and maintain nearly 100% of their weight. In appearance, they are shaped like ball ammo with the tip flattened and they feed in the 1911's just like ball ammo. They are a different beast from semi-wadcutters.
