I believe in diversity, as can be seen inside my three magazines, one of which resides inside my big bedroom-defense weapon, an old 1911
Colt .45 that will keep me alive: ...hollow point, round nose, hollow point, round nose, hollow point... :comeandgetsome:

I "dutch load" my wife's LCP like this, because penetration with the .380 is marginal (~10") with JHPs.

Not sure the benefit of doing this with a .45 and modern JHPs, however.

My thinking is:

9mm and above - all JHPs
.380 - mix JHPs and FMJ
below .380 - all FMJ

I see no need to vary the bullet type, grain, or make...OMOYMV
The most important thing is that the type used works well in that particular firearm.:blink::yup:

When 380 CD ammo was not available I dutch loaded. Of late been able to find different 380 rounds and changed out the loads to only one proven round. In the past I have fired dutch loaded mag in my P3AT and it ate everything like it tasted good.
