The only reason you would ever use full metal jacket is if you're gun did not reliably cycle jacketed hollow points or as a cost saving measure for practice.
I have seen 357 magnum rounds that didn't open up which is essentially a full metal jacket blow through a Whitetail deer. It's effect was lousy. The bullet had total pass-through of course but the deer look like it hadnt even been shot and ran for over a mile without recovery. On the other hand I have seen a 10 mm 180 grain hollow point traveling at approximately 1080fps kill a deer in under 30 yards with total expansion.

If you do have a gun can't reliably cycle hollowpoint ammunition, I suggest you find a better gun.
