What Are Hollow Point Bullets?
hollow point bullet is a specialized bullet with a
hollowed out tip. The purpose of the hollow tip is to cause the
bullet to expand as it hits it's target. As the bullet expands,
it causes greater damage to the target (bigger hole, more tissue
damage, blood loss and shock) and as a result the bullet does
not over penetrate (designed to remain in the target).
Hollow point bullets are used primarily for self defense
(causing greater damage to the target) and situations where you
have to be concerned with over-penetration (bullet going through
walls and causing collateral damage).
They are sold in a variety of shapes and
designs. Some are designed for extreme expansion or
fragmentation on impact.
