Best Feeding Hollow Point ?




Read somewhere that there is one factory round out there that has a bullet profile similar to FMJ 230 gr. Anyone happen to know which one it is? Can't remember and wanted to try some.

Not my first choice for self defense, though.

I think you are referring to the Federal HST's. Expensive and hard to find in stock, they are the closest thing to FMJ that I have seen.

Just another quick note.....Hornady manufactures a Truncated Cone bullet that is supposed to have all of the strike points that hardball ammo has. If your pistol feeds hardball, it should feed the Hornady TC bullet. It's not a hollow-point, though.....some people won't use a not HP bullet for SD. It's a personal decision, but thought that I'd mention this as a reminder.
Take care.

Expensive? They cost about $35/50 rounds. Not bad at all.

As to ball-like loads, first let me say this:



Now that my snark bone has been stretched, the following loads are designed to have a profile similar to ball for optimal feeding (and are bullets I would trust my life to):

Winchester Ranger
Speer Gold Dot
Federal HST
Remington GS
Winchester PDX1

However, asking about this on the internet is not going to tell you whether your gun in particular will run with them or not. As always, if your gun has trouble feeding, see a gunsmith.

Delta,
LMAO, just saw your response. I heard about them and tried to order some and never could find any in stock. I saw them again at Shotshow, and forgot about them until now. I researched them when I was having some feeding issues with Rem GS im my commander.

As compared to 230 FMJ, they is expensive ( I actually thought they cost more ). I now only shoot 230 FMJ, which is what the 1911 was made to shoot, God bless JMB's soul.

Can't we just hi-jack this thread and argue FMJ vs HP in a slow moving bullet ( one more time ).
