Why target bullets aren't designed for hunting.


Target bullets are designed with thinner jackets to better obdurate to barrels for improved accuracy. There are no internal fracture lines in the nose to initiate expansion and the thin jacket cannot contain the core if the nose does expand. So, the bullet may expand violently creating a shallow surface wound or it may pencil through creating little trauma and a wounded animal.
