All things being equal (which they are not, especially in this case), a FMJ bullet will outpenetrate a HP pretty much every time. HP are made to stop and deliver all of their energy inside the target while FMJ are designed to keep on going, and slower bullets generally outpenetrate faster bullets of the same size, weight and construction. If you don't believe this, try it. Of course, the two bullets the OP is asking about are not the same, but my money would be on the FMJ 45ACP to outpenetrate the HP 44 Mag.
