Looking over Mr DiFabio's article 'The Choice' again, it reminded me that my choices for country versus city are different. For country I would almost always choose wide, flat-nose cast lead bullets in an heavy weight for the given cailbre, but city tend toward JHPs (XTP or GD).
Is there any reason why choosing a 200/230gr LSWC in .45 or a 180/200gr LSWC 10mm for defence is inferior to one of the 'premium' JHP loadings? Is one really doing any service by going with the expanding bullet?

The only draw back of SWC bullets maybe feeding reliablity in semi auto guns. I think the Hornady 230 gr. flatpoint bullet would be a great "social" round. Jeff Cooper recommends this load.

I like flat points because they penetrate much deeper than jhp bullets and cut a wider wound channel than a round nosed bullet.
