Hollow points a gimmick?? I guarantee you a .45 firing an XTP HP at 900fps will most assuredly punch a 1/2" hole in flesh every time. If you've had problems with HP bullets jamming you have an issue with your weapon. Ball ammo is good for target practice. I would never carry that in my gun for self defense.<quoted text>
I dont use ball ammo i use semi wad cutter.
I dont care what leo uses. In my experience hollow points jam and they dont penetrate well. Hollow points are a gimmick that the inexperienced buy into. If you like them keep using them. Id rather have a reliable half inch hole myself. I learned that from my grandfather, who was a cop.

Hollow points dont go thru thick flight jackets or car doors...penetration is diminished. Men have been killing each other in wars for years without hollow points...Hollow points lack energy and there is no exit wound. Hollow points have more recoil and follow up shots are slower..My grandpa always said two shots are better than one.
Once again, i dont use "ball ammo"...
JHP are illegal in some cities....
There is nothing wrong with my gun...JHP have always had feeding issues. Its common knowledge.
Heres an excerpt:
In pistol calibers, expanding hollowpoints are preferred to create the largest permanent wound cavity possible. There are a lot of people who pick a load without adequately researching the ammo they trust their life on. The Federal Hydra-Shock is one such example. It was the whiz-bang bullet of its time, but has since been eclipsed by many other bullet designs. The principal weakness of that round are its lack of expansion AFTER PASSING THRU CLOTHING.
