Do Plated pistol bullets expand ?
One of my favorite pistol calibers is .45acp
One reason I like it is because even FMJ makes a big hole without expanding ( and FMJ feeds perfectly 99% of the time ).
I see that several companies sell bullets for reloading / target use that have a lead core with a thin COATING of copper,
which eliminates leading in the bore, but is much less expensive than jacketed bullets.
Since I believe Bigger is always Better :tongue: It occurred to me that if these expand they might be an improvement over .45 FMJ for defensive shooting.
I have no experience with these plated bullets , and want to know if they show any expansion when the impact something
firmer than paper.
