Not all hollow points result in an FTF condition. A few work quite well. Hornady XTP works, as does Fiocchi Extrema (which uses the same XTP bullet). Also, the Magtech 92.5 grain SCHP works fine (this uses the Barnes copper bullet which has as profile that is very tapered with a small opening).
Federal HST and Speer Gold Dots will fail every time (at least in my pistol). Also, (and I would not have expected this) Federal EFMJ will fail every time. These are not actually hollow points, but have a profile similar to a truncated round nose.
