OK, don't want to start the whole, "Is the 45 acp good enough protection from bear" debate again (it's what I have and isn't changing), but I have read that ball ammo would make more sense for this purpose than hollow points or self-defence rounds due to extra penetration, makes sense to me. Problem is, I can't seem to find a good +p fmj out there. I thought about Pow'rball, there ballistics claims are impressive, but those are just about the same as hollow points really. Anyone have some suggestions? Additional info: I guess I should've mentioned that my pistol is a HK45.
