Hey, I was just sayin. Smith and Jeff Cooper were fans of FMJs. I shoot cast in my 1911s and would be talkin out my patoot about HPs of any flavor. I don't know what twenty designer .45acps go for, but I'm thinking I can cast and load close to a thousand rounds for the same money. That is how you get to Carnegie Hall after all, practice, practice, practice.
Yeah, Smith likes hardball...for practice. There isn't any reason you can't practice with hardball and carry hollowpoint, especially since you load your own and can customize your practice ammo to match carry ammo whilst on your way to Carnegie Hall.
