    He he... compared to CorBon DPX or Federal HST's those really don't do much to build any confidence!

    Where did you get those?

    They don't look bad at all.

    Is the size of the hollow point cavity as important in expansion as the types of material in the jacket and the velocity of the round?

    I remember one round that had the nickname of “the flying ashtray”. I don’t think that those rounds are around anymore. I do not know if their demise was a problem with feeding reliably (I believe they were .45 ACP), or if it was just discontinued because of a redesign.

    I think that was a 200 grain Gold Dot 45ACP, and they are still in production.

    Save a stack of old phone books and wet them down. In a safe place of course and backstop, you could shoot a couple into the wet phone books to see how they expand.

    That looks like CCI's Blazer aluminun case practice hollow point. Sort of like Winchester's Ranger SXT practice ammo.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.
