Many short barreled (<3 inches) auto loaders are picky eaters, so is there any great sin in carrying FMJ for personal protection? I realize the Pandora's box of opinions this may open, and if you have another thread that already explores this thoroughly (I'm sure they're out there), I'd be happy to read it. It just seems like someone can shoot a lot more ammo at .18 cents a round vs the .50+ cents for a quality hollow point, so where is the line between expansion performance and ammo reliability? My own feeling is that I'd rather run a couple rounds of fmj and KNOW that they will cycle reliable, vs a percent of that number of rounds in expensive hollow points. Crazy? Maybe, but I'm curious what you all think. As always, thank you for your thoughts.
