TANK:
The reason the military can only use full metal jacket or (hard ball) is because of the Geneva and Hague Conventions.

Besides in war, a wounded solder requires more people to care for them, than a dead solder.

But in a teotwawki situation we are not governed by either conventions. Although I do have soft point, and hollow point ammo for hunting. I perfer to have on hand hard ball only because of the expense. I can buy about 3 times the amount of hard ball as I can the soft or hollow point stuff. I believe in a teotwawki situation looters and rioters are not going to be very well trained. So with that in mind the first couple of shots are going to scatter most people, and if I'm wrong, people coming thru the door aint gonna like their reception.
