Not trying to be snarky here, but why not just use wadcutters?
The pistol this will be shot in has a bore with a slow rate of twist. I'm looking for a lighter bullet / less bearing surface to compensate for the slow twist. Swaged wadcutters in .314 are commonly 85 or 98 grain. I found a swaged semi wadcutter in .314 that is 75 grains and thought about trying it.

None of this is for self defense, it's for punching holes in paper at 50 yards. Cartridge is .32 S&W Long. Bullet speed at the muzzle will be around 650 fps, hardly a self defense round.
