Extreme velocity is not the answer to getting a hollow point to expand. It was in the early days but there are many newer bullet designs that will expand reliably at velocities that are much easier on the gun's forcing cone. The Speer Gold Dot in one that I have tested extensively and it WILL expand at 850 FPS. Trying to push a light bullet at 1400 FPS just wastes powder and beats the gun up.
