Jacketed hollowpoints are a fairly recent phenomenon. Even though they are promoted highly as personal defense ammo they have their drawbacks (failures to feed and penetrate). As a counterpoint, look back on the 500 year history of firearms and the work that solid projectiles have performed, and then review the military history and dependability of 45 FMJ for the past 100 years. When considering the lethal history of 45 ammo in the past century, it would not surprise me if jacketed hollowpoints have accounted for only a small fraction of 1%.
