I have used jacketed hollowpoints for the last few years on pins. Not because of the effectiveness, but I was lucky enough to latch on to a sponsor! Before that , I used the 255 swc in lead exclusively. It works really well if it feeds ok in your pistol. I think I used to load them with 4.2 gr of Bullseye. I won many prizes with that round and would go back to it if I ever lose my free ammo!
