    but what if it is the only choice?

    NJ does not allow Law Abiding people to use other than FMJ rounds. No hollow points.

    New Jersey ranks right up there with CA. Actually CA is better off than they are in some ways now.

    So how does this address something like a ballistic tip? or soft nose like an SP type round. Does this only concern handgun ammo or does it include rifle ammo. How do they address the many calibers that are both rifle and pistol

    Is steel shot considered a FMJ round?

    Lmao.. OK!
    So if my projectile goes through a wall, and another and another I guess its all good because I would have been following the law.

    Christ, they need to hang the legislators over there.

    They have Polymer tipped ammo which is a hollow point with a polymer filling. it is not classifyed as a hollow point but reacts about the same.

    well, still better than nothing.

    type of bullet does count too. but I don't think bad-guys will react different, just because you have FMJ ammo.

    Expanding full metal jacket is probably the choice for use in Communist countries like NJ, or JSP if your load develops enough velocity to expand.

    I'll bet that Federal EFMJ was made just for the Peoples Republic of Jersey, York, California and Columbia.

    I care. When we allow these infringements to continue in Nj, Ny, Ca, Ct, and other states then we end up having to fight the same attempts at taking away our rights here at home. Just look at the attempted legislation in both OR and WA in the last two legislative sessions and the current Initiative in WA and we can see what happens when we are not proactive elsewhere.

    No, it only limits them from using HP ammo. There are MANY other kinds of ammo besides FMJ and HP.........
