There is no denying that an expanding bullet increases the odds of at least nicking a vital organ or artery. At the same time, a flat nosed projectile that comes in contact with bone, sends bone pieces everywhere, also increasing the likelihood of at least a nick on the vitals.
A FMJ Round nose just slips on through or ricochets off bone. If it hits a vital directly, it is no better or worse than a HP. "Odds Are" that a flat nose or HP will be more effective in the long run. I do not carry FMJ RN.....
