I will re-define your "warping" to deform. So, your P232 deforms your hollow points, when cycled into the chamber.
There are SEVERAL things that WILL cause this, few of which I would recommend you tinker with. However, there is one simple possibility that "may" eliminate the problem. Tap your magazine on a hard surface (length down) after its loaded. This will re-seat the feed spring. It will lower the feed pressure on the magazine thereby the round to be fed won't collide with the feed ramp. IF you are lucky, the HP will gently follow the feed ramp and chamber properly. In the even that this doesn't work, then you'll need to take your P232 AND your magazines to a "good" Gunsmith. He will have to re-bend the retainer on your magazines to feed properly.
P232's do not generally have any sort of feed problems!
