    I bought a box of .40 S&W white box hollow points after watching a You Tube video...

    this guy isn't very scientific, such as gel, but it gives a decent idea of the .45 ACP version...

    WinchesterUSA ammo uses bullets that used to be part of their old SuperX law enforcement ammo line, so it's better than plain old ball ammo. With the ammo situation being as unpredictable as it is these days, if it was all that I could find, I'd carry it.

    Used to buy these at Walmart but have not seen any JHP's there since the ammo shortage. Had not issues with them and liked the price.

    I shoot them a good bit. The jacket will separate a little. I would not be too concerned with their performance a self defense shooting situation.

    I like the WWB JHP's. Also, like your Hi Point JHP avatar! I assumed it was a JHP, due to the .45 Auto ammo you are asking about. I have, among way more expensive guns, two Hi Points...the JHP I have has just over 800 rounds through it with only ONE FTE! It is butt-ugly, but shoots like a house on fire.

    Yes that is a JHP 45 cal hi point...i took my CCW class with that gun, took it out of box and put 100 rounds thru it with no issues, i probably have 600 rounds thru mine. I had issues with JHP not chambering right but i fixed that issue by reworking the ramp and a little tweaking on the mags.

    I'm thinking (hoping) that he meant a 100 round box.

    I've bought quite a few of those at WW for range ammo. They're not too much more expensive than FMJ and I figure they can double as SD ammo in a pinch. They're not HST's or Gold Dots, but they should have an edge over FMJ.

    Winchester PDX1 is one of my preferred rounds. I have not seen the WWB JHP in a long time, but if I needed carry ammo there are worse ammo choices out there.

    Keep shopping.

    That said I have never had issues and have put several boxes through without mishap.
