Never said it was. I said the action of the fluid acts differently in a hollow point than on a solid lead point. Visualize it this way: pinch the small end of a funnel shut so you've got a closed cone, and then hold it up to a full-running garden hose. If you hold it with the small end toward the hose, the fluid ("hydraulic pressure") will flow around the funnel with little resistance on your hand. Turn the funnel around, with the big (open) end to the water jet, and it WILL push back much harder on your hand. Simple physics; the water is being redirected much more this way than when it hits the small end first.andy said:so HOW is their LEAD core, ANY softer than DEAD SOFT lead cast bullets,

So now I'm full of $hit? About what, specifically?andy said:you are fos, suckered in by the jhp makers.
I hold ammo makers' claims right up there with auto makers' claims; neither means that much to me. I never said anyone's claims were true or not.andy said:What they claim is NOT true, and I can PROVE it, on animals.
Surely you're not saying that LRN or LFP ammo WILL expand as well as a modern HP round, are you?John in AR said:Absolutely true that more velocity is better for more expansion, but HP's, especially modern HP's will absolutely expand better in flesh than the same weight/diameter/velocity LRN or LFP, if we're talking about "expansion in flesh".
So what, specifically, am I fos about; and what, specifically is wrong with those statements?John in AR said:I guess what I'm saying, is that while energy (i.e. 'velocity') is definitely a very important factor, it's not the only factor. The effects on a given target type can very greatly, even with the same caliber/energy combination.
