Good and bad reports. Seems there are issues with inconsistant expansion.
If they can get that fixed it could end up a very nice round.

Biggest problem with hollowpoints is the cavity being filled up with cloth or something else before it hits the body and then it can't expand properly.

It's a good idea and better than FMJ. It's the issue ammo (.40 S&W) for Detroit PD they have had some issues with it in actual shooting incidents. I'd carry it if I couldn't carry JHPs. CorBon's PowRBall is another "non hollow point" that feeds, functions and expands with boring reliability.

I think Detroit PD has been lobbying to change to a different ammo from EFMJ. As has been mentioned it's reputation is less than sterling among those who have seen results of street use and those who have tested it in-lab. Go to www.tacticalforums.com and search the "The Terminal Effects Forum" for "EFMJ"

Expanding Full Metal Jacket

In testing it hasn't expanded as consistently as quality JHPs such as Speer Gold Dot or Win. Ranger T.
