Why can't you get 300 XTPs .
I believe those are hollow-points and HPs are a no-no where I live.
They will be harder, thicker jacket and maybe lead. I wouldn't expect a great deal of expansion at pistol velocities.
I'm not actually after expansion. I'm more after penetration regardless of skeletal obstacles.
This is purely a "kindly don't eat/gore me" load for when I'm in the forests.
All in all, they sound like a real, accessible option.
You cannot wake someone who is pretending to sleep. Stop pretending. Wake up.
Doubt: ...it's the only thing I'm sure of...
