  1. The photo looks like a hollow point. Not sure, but I don’t think hollow points are used for training purposes.

    Could be wrong.

    1. Hey #1, hollow point ammo is banned for use in war zones so they’ll just use it on the civilian population.

  2. Training ammunition? I’m confused. Did the patriots buy up all of their precious hollow point ammunition?
