Taking a day to relax after being up all night with work. Watching Border Wars on National Geographic Channel. BP officer was talking about these dangerous guns and bullets they found in a suspects truck. Apparently someone snitched out the suspect that he was going to be moving arms over the border into Mex.
"It's a colt 38 cal found under the seat. It's loaded. These are controlled expansion shells, known as hollowpoints on the street."
Oh my... All those purty guns getting shredded...

They're "Jacketed Hollow Points"... Nothing slang or street about it.
No, that's left to the journalist who keep calling them" dum dums" or bullets that "explode" when hitting tissue
You can call them felonies in NJ.
Mustn’t forget the cop killer bullets.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

The containers they come in indicate the type 147gr JHP; 115gr FMJ; duh. But have to say the government is doing a good job covering up all those bad MEXICAN weapons by showing them being destroyed.
"Controlled Expansion Ammunition" was the euphemism invented by some level of government - been a long time ago so bear with me - I think in San Diego, California to combat or mitigate the opposition to the Police Department adopting 'hollowpoint' or 'dumdum' bullets. What I find very funny is how the opposition groups - all pro-criminal leftist mobs - bought the deception. I also remember the U. S. government (I was a Border 'Troll at the time) using that phrase at times, as it was a politically correct term.
"Cop Killer" bullets was the phrase used initially by one of the major news networks - CBS comes to mind but I might be wrong - in the early 1980s to defame KTW ammunition. KTW made commercial handgun ammunition made from bronze or copper and coated with teflon. The ammunition was designed to penetrate automobile bodies, body armor and other barricades. KTW took great pains to sell their product only to law enforcement agencies. The news agency in question started reporting on the ammunition, left out the part about law enforcement sales, and started banging the drum about the 'cop killer bullets' which were made to penetrate body armor and kill cops.
By the way, the teflon coating was simply to protect rifling from the rather hard bronze bullet.
Also humorous in a sad way; one of my colleagues in the Border Patrol was absolutely convincing that a bullet - any bullet - dipped in teflon would penetrate a vest. Not long after that, Federal Ammunition started producing a .38 Special round with a teflon coated lead bullet. The reason for the configuration was to prevent lead particulates in the air on indoor ranges. But the teflon coating panicked some people.
Anyone Worth Shooting Is Worth Shooting Well

Wonder if they would panic if we just sprayed our bullets with PAM Cooking spray since its supposed to the same thing as Teflon????
You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.
