    Why
    Ball will give you two holes instead of just one.
    Hollow points were made so you won't over penetrate. In a SHTF who cares.you might even get a two for one shot.

    If hollow point ammo is what you want, wouldn't it make sense to just go and buy some?

    Yup, it's not worth the fuss for about $.02 per round extra. Not like you need ALL ammo to be for SHTF.
    You can always stagger HP with ball ammo too.

    I rebuilt a lot of machines for Federal Cartridge and was in their plant a lot. I rebuilt their bullet assembly presses and know that there is a lot of engineering goes into the dies that form the lead and copper jacket. The result is test fired for accuracy and if there is a failure it is back to the drawing board.

    It is my opinion that it is ONLY in the movies that you can drill into the bullet and make it into a HP and fire it with accuracy.

    Armies have been using ball ammo for over 100 years. In a SHTF environment any ammo will do the job.

    Hollow Points

    I have played around with altered FMJ bullets at about 50' mainly out if boredom. They were .22 Shorts. Accuracy was not significantly altered. That being said quality SD rounds are not that much more expensive.

    I did it many yrs. ago with .22 rds & didn't notice a difference, maybe I got lucky & hit the right spot over & over again.

    2˘/round extra? Last time I checked defense ammo is more than twice what ball/plinking ammo costs.
