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,

I would expect no difference in accuracy between the two at match shooing ranges. The RN might feed better but its best to test for this. All guns are different so you may find a particular load that will give the best accuracy for your individual piece.
