Shooting jacketed hollow points at steel is bad, the jackets separate from the core and come flying back at the shooters like mini buzz saws.

This is especially true when shooting them out of 38 super raceguns with loads making major power factor.

Many shooters at the American Handgunner World Shootoffs suffered cuts from these mini buzz saws, some of the cuts were pretty bad, so those running the match outlawed JHP bullets altogether.

The minimum distance of the steel at the match was 12 yards.
