So alternating like that doesn't effect feeding?

Shouldn't, not if they both perform fine individually, alternating doesn't affect anything.

I kind have thought it wouldn't, but I'm new to the idea.

Default What I carry

When I carried a 380 I alternated each round with hollow point and full metal jacket. I still load my magazine's the same way as I found out from a former sheriff that was the way he loaded his magazine. If for some reason due to heavy clothing the hollow point didn't penetrate far enough the next round full metal jacket would probably do the job.
I can see the logic in doing this regardless what caliber your using.

I actually start with FMJ. Better to lead with your strong suit. Give the BG two holes first, then go ahead and go for shock value.

When I carried the 380 for this caliber I did start with the full metal jacket. For a number of years now I have carried the 45 caliber 1911's. With this caliber I start with the hollow point then the full metal jacket. The hollow point ammo designed for short barrel pistol's has quite a bit more of punch to it which I use only in a heavier semi. I usually load the Remington 230 grain hollow point and alternate with the standard 230 grain full metal jacket. Another type of ammo I alternate with is from the Israel Military Industries which is the 185gr. match wad cutter that's copper plated. That is also a good self defense choice.
