Anyone care to express an opinion on this? Much as I like my .45’s, I find myself more often than not carrying one of my Mustangs. I still can’t make up my mind whether hollow points are a good idea in a barrel this short (less than 3“). I know real men carry a .45 ALL the time, but I like the Mustang and mine shoot reliably and accurately with hardball, hollow points and my lead practice reloads. I use Hydro-shock’s for the hollow point since reading an article years ago about them expanding reliably at lower velocities. In the winter I generally switch over to hardball for it’s supposed better penetration (winter clothes). I understand the limitations of the round, and am not trying to make it something it will never be, but I wonder about this. In the less than 3” barrel of my favorite LITTLE gun, would I be better off just sticking to ball? Hollow points are nice in theory, but I keep thinking penetration might be the better bet.
