Fire enough of them and they will damage your forcing cone. It used to be the case that hollow points needed to be fired at very high speeds to ensure expansion. That is no longer the case. To achieve those very high speeds required large charges of powder. In a gun with a vented barrel like a revolver these kind of loads will cause gas cutting of the forcing cone and the top strap. There is no reason to subject your revolver to this kind of abuse. Choose a medium weight bullet that will acheive a moderate velocity from a short barrel. And put it where it needs to go.
