1 - Get 'r done, but not nail the neighbor (Magsafe?):
Assuming that price is not an issue, is there a load that I can shoot in one room, with plenty of stopping power, that won't blow through the next room and endanger others?

2 - Penetration (FMJ?):
Also, if I do want to shoot through a wall or door, is a JHP as effective as a FMJ?

3 - Hunting (JHP?):
What is the best knockdown load for whitetail or boar in south Texas?

Also, does anyone know if wadcutters or semi-wadcutters are legal in Texas?

Thanks

Magsafe and other similiar rounds do not exhibit good penetration, and if you miss the target the person on the other side of piece of drywall is still in danger. Not saying there isn't a good use for them, but I'd think long and hard before depending on them. Plus with their price, you'll go broke shooting enough of them to make sure they are reliable in your handgun.

Kinda, sorta, in a way. I wouldn't rely on much expansion happening.

A rifle caliber from a rifle. ;)

If you want to see some un-scientific, yet interesting info on ballistic performance check out - http://www.theboxotruth.com - I doubt the FBI will be adopting any of the tests, but there still some good info there.

Ammo-legality questions are frequently the newb-question-du-jour over at Packing. org, but the only such ban apparently on the record is the screwball PRNJ no-hollowpoints law. In Texas, you should be god to go with whatever you like, as long as it ain't armor-piercin'. Now, there may be some questions if ya gotta use yer piece, but...
