    I'll add that in grizzly bear country (hiking, hunting etc.) I would carry a 158gr JSP load for double duty SD against two and four legged predators.
    Thank you, you're bear country, hiking condition, was the answer I was looking for. That was my thinking also. I understand stopping power and how it's related to the HP ammo. Use HP because you just want to stop them, not kill them. And, because the HP is less likely to over penetrate and harm innocent people in a crowded area, also because of the "assumed" short distance between you and the BG. Shot placement is always the best solution to ending any attack, no need to elaborate. Hollow points for concealed carry in any public forum, soft point in any rural area or traveling, is my way of thinking. I can't confirm this, but I have read that the survival rate of gunshot wounds in relation to HP ammo is 80%. If that is true, we then know why ONLY the HP is ever recommended for self defense, or any other defense for that matter where human life is involved, "STOP THEM, DON'T KILL THEM'. I don't believe HP ammo is BEST, it is however BETTER, for the BG and any innocent bystanders.
