Many years ago, like ca.1980, the Memphis Police Department SWAT team was armed with S&W Model 25 revolvers in .45 Colt, and after some testing (I don't know what was involved) selected the Winchester 225 gr. Silvertip Hollow Point as their standard ammunition.

Part of their choice was that the bullet did not over penetrate the human body, and it tended to "skid" along pavement rather than ricocheting.
