MY experience with the solid copper Barnes hollow points bullets is limited to mule deer and elk. They do penetrate,(over penetrate?) but they don't expand enough to really "put them down" like Speer, Hornady and Sierra soft points.
I didn't fight to defend your freedom so you could vote to take away mine.
