Top quality HV solids for pistol and HP for rifles. A 36 grain Mini Mag HP will penetrate 3 pieces of cloth and 13+" of ballistic gel at 30 yards while expanding to almost double when fired from a rifle. Most HP will not expand in the velocities obtained in short barrels and will not penetrate as well as the solids. Stingers and Velocitors are the exceptions but the Stinger is only 32 grains while the Velocitor is 40grains. Some semi autos have problems with the hyper velocity rounds. A revolver would be a safer bet as you dont have to clear a dud.

"As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."
