The critical defense ammo stops this. I have carried that and currently carry Winchester pdx1.....NASTY looking stuff when it opens up. And it is what the FBI is carrying. Just my two cents ....
When I say design flaws, I mean anything that fails to expand when fired on a simulated human target. I still vet ammo. There are just too many variables to say that one ammo is the best. Hell, it may be better to have ball ammo in some instances. Honestly, full expansion and 8 inches of penetration is all you really need. Just enough to get to the organs. My 2 cents.

[Remington 870 12GA][Stoeger Model 3500 12GA][Savage 116 .30-06][Savage Model 10 Bull Barrel .223][Marlin 336SS .30-30][Marlin 39A .22][Marlin 795 22LR][Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm][Ruger MkIII 22LR]

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
