I am reading about people have had good luck with this or that hollow point, or critical defense ammo..does that mean that you have shot people or animals with it and they all died? I am a Vietnam Vet, and all we had was FMJ ammo. I know we lost that war but not due to the ammo. It was because of politicians. I use whatever shoots good in my handguns and rifles. If they don't drop on the first round...you can always give it another go! I will not spend double money for specialty ammo. Just my story...and I"m sticking to it!
