May 09, 2017 · Are hollow points really “deadlier” than FMJ? Discussion in ‘General Gun Discussions’ started by grampajack, May 9, 2017. ?

Jul 22, 2011 · It is for this reason that the discussion often comes up if it is better to use hollow point ammunition (an expanding bullet that has a pit or hollowed out tip) or full metal jacket (FMJ – a bullet consisting of a soft core, usually lead, encased in a shell of harder metal).
