Softpoint vs Hollowpoint: Which and Why?
I was loading some softpoints for the 7.62x54R the other day. I got to thinking, why do they make both?
Given a hollowpoint designed to expand (not the target type) and a softpoint of the same weight and basic design, what is the difference in terminal performance?
Why choose one over the other?
I was raised around handguns, shotguns and rimfires; the rifle's terminal ballistics and bullet designs are new to me.
I do not understand why one might choose an expanding hollowpoint over a softpoint, or vice versa.
Is it better to live by a corrupt society's standards rather than face persecution for not doing the same? This is the dilemma we now face. We must hold fast to our convictions as we confront this dilemma. Knowing one's self goes a long way in the crisis. - Me
