BREAKING: U.S. Army Switching to Hollow Point Ammunition

Sources tell TTAG that the United States Army is switching from ball to hollow-point ammunition for its next generation handgun. The Army dropped the bombshell yesterday at the Modular Handgun System Industry Day in Picatinny, New Jersey. The event was held as part of the Army’s procurement process to replace the Beretta M9 handgun and the ammunition used for the gun. After making the announcement, an Army lawyer mounted the stage to mount a defense for the switch hollow-points . . .

The U.S. did not agree to a ban on expanding ammo by international treaty. And the the Army’s prepared to defend the decision in the court of international law and opinion. His core argument: countries that will denounce the use of hollow-point use the hollow points for their police forces.

The U.S. military has always used hollow point ammunition, they just didn't mass distribute it. Ball ammo is cheaper to procure, so they saved the good stuff for special operations. Since the U.S. never signed the agreement at the Hague, they have never been limited by it.
