You are correct about sp bullets, but the difference like some have stated is that the fmj will not expand, which when a bullet expands it also displaces most of its energy into the animal that is hit. Even though the bullet passes through you will have a quicker kill than with fmj.

you left out the details man. sp for the most part expand (ive seen some barely expand) loosing alot of the energy. some expand to well and are found in lil pieces throught the animal, much like a hp. but sp are meant for stoppin power and to creat big enough wound to mame or a quick death.

Why are you so dang set on using FMJ bullets for hunting???? For varmints like coyotes use a ballistic tip or soft point bullet that will fragment inside the animal. For deer use a good soft point bullet of that will expand and retain as much weight as possible. For small game like squirrels and rabbits, just use a .22.
sure leave out the scatter guns, for one dont shoot into the air at any animal unless you got a shotgun they dont travel far with bird shot. or use .22 birt shot. at thirty yards its like using sand paper on your target lol
