The 38 special round nose lead bullet was used for years in police work. Accuracy was important to get good results, which should be the case with all defensive ammo. Many here will argue the 158 rnl bullet because of profile and shape, yet carry a 45 with ball or a 32 acp or 380 with ball because of penetration and not think about it. How many hear ever carry a small 32 acp or 380 and use only ball ammo? I picture a long nitting needle going through a person front to back into a vital area, not a good day here. There is much better ammo out there, but accuracy "placement" and penetration is what works best. Many in the medical world have said that they can't tell any difference in a wounds tracks from a 32 or a 45 when ball or round nose lead is used.
