I bought some wolf HP ammo, I am little mad that I did not wait and get FMJ what I always buy. Does anyone have a picture with a fmj and hp round split open? I am kinda mad its "cheaper" of a bullet than a fmj for about the same price... What does the HP do better than the FMJ?? :confused:

I shoot a lot of the Wolf JHP and FMJ depending on what's cheapest at the time. Don't see a significant difference between them beyond the JHP exploding water filled bottles better and also being a bit easier on my steel plates.

Expand on entry, creating a larger wound channel. Although, I am not sure how the small HP on rifle bullets like this really compares to a bonded JHP pistol round with its much larger cavity.

if you're going for accuracy you shouldn't be using wolf in the first place, if you're plinking either one works fine.

fmj = more penetration
hollow point = flattenting of bullet or what not
soft point (my favorite) = massive damage due to the round tumbling after impact.

typically , the hollows seem to be a tad more accurate than a fmj; otherwise I agree with everything said above thus far...
