Welcome to the forum.
IMO, a good, reliable hollow point.
Most "name" brands should work.
"Ball" ammo has a bad rap for overpentration. The military are limited to using ball by the pacts the US has signed with other countries on military ammo.
Civilians are not limited to the same restrictions and should "cheat" as much as possible in self defense.
