describes EVERY SINGLE hunting bullet with the exception of non-expanding solids. and actually hunters want massive bleeding. it drains the blood from the meat. every single hunting implement be it knife, spear, arrow or bullet operates the same way aslong as there isnt a CNS hit. massive bleeding that causes the blood pressure to the brain to drop to the level that the animal passes out and dies.Hollowpoint bullets are designed to expand once inside of the target body. Therby shredding the meat, leaving bits of shrapenel behind and genarally causing massive internal bleeding and injury
non expanding solids in smaller calibers such as the .366 and .375 rifles are used almost exclusivly for CNS shots. in larger calbers such as .458 and such solids can be used cause when your punching a half inch hole through something expansion is generally not needed though some profesional hunters prefer that an individual use expanding bullets on everything except elephant and hippo. you are also generally hunting something that bites back in which case your generally looking to break the shoulder and hip joints to stop the animal if your first shot doesnt bring about a quick end they also make it possible to try and penetrate the brain of the largest critters from any angle.
