As discussed in previous blogs, the grain of the round is the overall weight. Grain is a very small unit of measure — so small it takes more than a few hundred grains to add up to 1 ounce. So, the difference between a 115-grain round and a 124-grain round is the weight, sure. However, that’s just the first and biggest difference, not the only difference.
When you change the weight of a round, you do more than just make it heavier. You also change how the gun that’s firing it operates. A heavier round changes how the gun cycles and how the round impacts the intended target — not to mention the recoil that you’ll feel when firing.
