Bullet manufacturer and nose configuration does not significantly affect safe, recommended loads. A jacketed bullet is a jacketed bullet regardless of nose configeration. A safe load for a jacketed hollow point bullet is a safe load for a full metal jacketed bullet.
This is not true. Nose configuration affects bearing surface length which direcly affects pressure, and FMJ vs HP affects the tail of the bullet. An open base FMJ will have less resistance to the bore than a flat base hollowpoint bullet, as a solid gilding metal base will compress less than exposed lead.

Always do a load workup. No two components can be treated as "equals."

Machine guns are awesome until you have to carry one.
