If it has to be done in the same mag, get rounds of comparable weight and power so that the POI is the same or as close to it as possible.
Personally, if you want to carry hardball for penetration purporses, I'd recommend doing it in a backup mag. I carry two extra mags and one of them does have hardball in it. Now odds are I'll never use my firearm and even if I do, odds are that I will not fire enough rounds to even justify a reload (except for tactical reasons). However, if it did come to that, I'd rather have a different option for that 3rd mag. Although, in such a situation, it's probably time to be running away and praying.

The same argument could be made against carrying a gun at all. The average citizen is vanishingly unlikely to actually need a firearm to defend their life. However, if one DOES need a firearm for such a purpose you will need it very badly, and it seems prudent to be as well prepared as possible... whatever the individual in question believes that to be.

If you are worried though carry more mags with different rounds...IMO better way to "cover your bases"
I think carrying different ammo in the same magazine is a bad idea for reliability reasons, FMJ sitting on top of JHP may sit in the magazine and feed differently than JHP on top of JHP, but each person is responsible for their own life... do what works for you.
