Im sorry .. but alot of manufacturers produce amazing performing 40 S&W JHP .. is various weights
I always lean toward 40 S&W as a carry option
Both in semiautomatic and revolvers
Living in Maine, Longest I keep my carry ammo in the pistol/rifles is 1 year. I have had failures with dead primers with premium self defense ammo. Not sure if it was getting it wet, the hot/cold temp changes thru out the day, or oil seeping into the round. But it has happened more then one. And refreshing the ammo seems logical to me.
The flip side of your argument is that if the FBI had been using ball (fmj) instead of hollow points, then they might have killed some innocent bystanders with over penetrating rounds and the bad guys might have gotten away or killed more agents since they would not have been as incapacitated by the ball rounds has shown would be the case with hollow points, as experience with many agencies in many gunfights over the years. Now, the FBI still carries hollow point ammo as does virtually every other law enforcement agency.
No agency that has a choice of fmj or jhp that I know of has chosen fmj.
That's fine , if it is supported by empirical evidence.
