Sadly, none of the major makers put out a premium grade self defense round with a proper soft point or solid, so we're pretty much forced into using one of the top four or five hollow point loads. The closest I can get is either a Golden Saber Bonded or Critical Duty 220 +P.
Winchester and Browning both put out a flat nose 230 grain solid in 45 ACP. Velocities for both rounds are in the 900 fps range. I know that other rounds, such as 10mm, 9mm, and 380 ACP can be had with flat nose hard cast solids. 357 and 44 can be purchased with soft flat nose (semi-jacked) bullets.

Are those the types of rounds you would like to see?
