A Brief History of Hollow Point Bullets

The evolution of self-defense bullets has been marked by continuous innovation aimed at enhancing safety, effectiveness, and reliability. Originally, bullets were simple lead balls, which were effective but lacked precision and control upon impact. As firearms technology advanced, so did bullet design, leading to the development of the hollow point bullet in the late 19th century. This innovation revolutionized self-defense ammunition by providing bullets that could expand upon impact, creating a larger wound channel for increased stopping power while minimizing the risk of over-penetration and collateral damage. Over the years, manufacturers like Berry’s have refined and perfected the hollow point design, incorporating advanced materials and precise engineering to create bullets that offer unmatched performance in self-defense situations.

Why Hollow Points are Great for Self Defense

Hollow points are meticulously designed to expand upon striking soft tissue. This expansion significantly increases the wound channel while simultaneously ensuring that the bullet disrupts vital organs effectively, a crucial factor in self-defense situations. The effectiveness of using hollow points lies in their ability to stop a threat decisively with minimal risk of over-penetration, thereby drastically reducing the likelihood of collateral damage.


Berry’s Hybrid Hollow Points are the result of two merged developmental ideas. These bullets start with a swaged lead core, a process that promotes uniformity and consistency in performance. The lead core is then encased in a layer of copper through electroplating, a nod to the innovative process used in our Superior Plated Bullets®. This combination not only enhances the bullet’s structural integrity but also optimizes its bullet performance. After electroplating, the bullets are re-struck to achieve unparalleled precision in dimensions and weight, a step that reaffirms our commitment to quality and performance.


While Berry’s Bullets are optimized for self-defense, they’re also excellent for use in target ammo. Their ability to create clean, visible holes in paper targets makes them an ideal choice for competitive shooting and practice sessions, where precision and clarity are paramount.
