The "FBI load" 158 grain .38 special +P LSWC hollowpoints sold by Remington are very soft lead. I believe it requires pretty soft lead to ensure expansion at .38 special velocities. If you depend on the wide meplat and no expansion then I guess the harder the better. I'm sure there are tests favoring each design.
