Is anyone else concerned about “our” government purchasing about a billion rounds of hollow point ammunition? (Across agencies like Homeland Security, National Weather Service, Social Security Administration)? Hollow points are designed to inflict maximum human tissue and organ damage. These rounds are never used for target practice because they are so much more expensive than full metal jack rounds. The only advantage od hollow point rounds in urban combat is that these rounds are less likely to penetrate walls and strike non-combatants.
