  •  Some areas require them because of humane reasons (0+ / 0-)

    It is more likely to hit vital organs so they are required in some areas because it kills faster.

    •  Also safety reasons (0+ / 0-)

      They're also required for safety reasons, as they're less likely to go completely through a target or to ricochet off a hard object in the case of a miss.

      •  Mostly Saftety (0+ / 0-)

        A full metal jacketed bullet might pass through a deer and go another half mile in a somewhat random direction, while a hollow point is going to be deformed and then lose its remaining energy to air resistance much faster, like in a couple hundred yards.

        In point of fact, there needs to be an exit wound, or that just means the gun was too small to do the job humanely.
