... Any point to it (other than hollow, for you smart asses)? It's such a small caliber that, if not placed properly, it does little damage, comparitively speaking of course. Perhaps my assumption on hollow points is wrong, but my take, from the little I've learned, is that the purpose of a HP is to cause more damage than a standard FMJ. So I wonder, would any of you trust a 22lr pistol, if loaded with hollow points, for home defense? I'm betting the answer is no. So why, then, even bother making them. Do they really do any more damage than a run of the mill 22lr? Can any one give me a visual or any sort of tangible, layman, comparison to explain the results or balistics? How does it compare to say a 9mm FMJ?
