    NJ iirc not shure on that , but a state or two east of the iron river ( Missippi ) do prohibit and or limit them for civilian use .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    NJ law states that hollowpoints are illegal for self defense, however there is no restriction on purchasing and you may use them in target shooting. Makes a lot of sense, right?

    How about Federal's Expanding Full Metal Jacket (EFMJ) ammo--that would seem to avoid all hollow point issues, from feeding problems with a pistol to prohibition of hollow point ammunition.

    So New Jersey signed the Hague Conventions, it would appear! I wonder if they allow 00 buckshot for home defence...certainly a more powerful wounding potential than mere JHPs!

    I would guess that EFMJ and pwr balls are not hollow points as far as this law is concerned.

    Given that they are marketed as a solution for agencies that can't use hollow points, it could be folks wearing badges at the defendant's table....

    The morons who run NJ must be keen on overpenetration hurting bystanders when people engage in lawful self defense with a handgun.

    Yet another reason to stay away from NJ - with humble apologies to all residents thereof.
    Walk steathly - and carry a big Springfield.
