I know a 22 wmr JSP fired from a rifle would have put the doe running on her chin. It would have went through the deer and put her down. The 9mm HP failed to do that at less than 20 yards. Imagine what would happen if you shoot a 230 lb weightlifter cranked up on bath salts? You don't always get a second shot.
If nothing else the FMJ will create an exit wound that will cause the attacker to bleed to death before he breaks every bone in my body. What if you have some idiot trying to run you down with a car? Once again the FMJ is the tool for the job.
