Generally speaking the 125JHP is optimized for defensive use from pistols and I can tell you from personal experience that when driven to 2200fps from a carbine their performance is radically different and while violently expanding, penetration is ..suboptimal.

The regular jacketed 158s (and here I'd go with the soft point over the hollow point) can be driven over 1800fps from a carbine, and GENERALLY still hold together and perform well in game.

The bullet maker can tell you the velocity range their bullet is designed for. Give them a call or email and see what they say.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
