    I think you meant to say,

    Largely negated the benefits of using a hollow-point round which typically expands to 150% of the original diameter or so with handgun velocities.
    Not trying to be rude but there is a large technical difference between the two statements. With the first statement that would mean a 10mm JHP expands to 25mm. With the second statement that would mean a 10mm JHP would expand to 15mm. BTW I used 10mm because it makes the math easier, the actual caliber used as the example does not matter for this discusion.

    I'm happy with your correction, G50AE.

    Anyway, yes, a 1.5 caliber expansion factor. Thanks for the amplification, you wrote what I meant to say.
