First of all, I'd rather take neither as I would assume being shot is a painful experience
Second, I should have asked but forgot, what does it mean when it's a "ball" ammo? And what does ballistic tip mean?
Also, is there a page or something where I can read the standard grains of each ammo type? Like what's the average grain for a 9mm, a .45 acp, a .44mag, etc.
