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.
