    Hollow Point. Essentially, it is hollow. A brand name is Black Talon, because when it hits, outsides of the bullet cone flare open like a birds talons.

    Try to draw something like this

    Full Metal Jacket
    Fire!..........Penetration....Wound....Over-penetration
    =>....[ ]...... } =>]......... } }.............=>

    Full Metal Jacket
    Fire!..........Penetration...Larger Wound......Stopping Power
    =>...[ ].........=}< ]..............0 =|]................00=|]

    This creates a much larger wound. It also slows the bullet significantly. This results in more of the kinetic energy of the round being put into the body. Full metal jacket does not deform much. So the wound is neater and often results in what people call over-penetration. The bullet will fly right through the body and keep moving. All of the energy retained by the bullet once it has passed through the body is "wasted".

    Gotta run, I will help some more later if someone else hasn't already

    Great explanation of hollow points!

    Two added points. First, it's rare to find hollow point ammunition for military type rifles. That's because they are banned from military use by the Geneva Convention. Miitary bullets are typically composed of lead cores, surrounded by a thin coating of copper or steel, commonly refered to as a "full metal jacket".

    Second, civilians and law enforcement are not limited in their use of hollow point ammunition. This is the type of round that cops are most likely to be carrying, they are very popular for home defense. Most hollow point ammo is intended for use in pistols, and they work equally well in military pistols (the Berettas Michael and company are using) as in civilian pistols.

    Spoiler tags have been added, and this thread is now closed. We already gave our recommendation to start firearm/weapon threads in Everything else section and if they gain enough traction, we'll create a section for them.

    This is a spoiler free area of the forum and We're Alive discussion is best not had here. If you want to continue assessing wounds characters have suffered, please do so in either Episode Discussions or the Characters area. If you want to continue having general firearms conversations, that can be done in the Everything Else Section.
