Express have higher damage than split point, from what I know only split point use less Dead Eye.

So, Basically from what I am understanding here based on what everyone has said is that the Split ammo is the only ammo that reduces Dead Eye consumption.

Interesting tip for people still working on getting their Dead Eye Level up. After that, Express ammo is the way to go

Oh wow, didn't know about horseback crafting, nice tip! Though split point still doesn't seem worth the effort tbqh...

Yeah, I really enjoyed doing it while just taking my time on the road.

My main reason for using the split point (because I am saving my money up for paying off my bounties) is that it reduces the Dead Eye consumption which has really helped during my encounters with the Bounty Hunters

Basically I just view it as a time waste really, sure it helps but i don't fancy crafting 100+ every time i run low on the ammo, quicker to buy express ammo fresh from the store from my view.

I'm a bit of a hoarder with stuff like this. I have max of all ammo types and still use regular because you find it everywhere and it works just as good when you're getting headshots. If I'm in a situation with 10+ enemies I'll finally take out the express... Sometimes

Fair play. I'm at the point where I'm mostly done with structured single player content and I'm just roaming the post-story map causing chaos as combat practice for RDRO, and as part of my practice I'm no longer using Dead Eye as I want to be as effective as I can be without it since we don't know exactly how it is going to work Online.

 

Still, depending on what our ammo capacity is like in multiplayer, split point could be a good way to carry more bullets. Especially with commonly dropped stuff like revolver and repeater, we can easily fill up on normal rounds, craft them into split, loot more normal and only need to pay for express and/or high velocity.

This is a good point.

Alas, I won't be back home till after RDO drops. I will focus on finishing the story to get my practice back up
