It doesn't make any sense. A hollow point is much more effective at killing a person with no body armor on, but much less effective if they're even wearing a basic kevlar vest. A simple google search of "cop killer bullets" will show it was a term from the 80s about both steel core bullets, hard brass core bullets, and teflon coated bullets.
Really? Cause thats exactly the fucking point I was making.
Basically any sort of "exotic" ammo in the 80s and 90s was vilified as "cop killer" even if it was totally misrepresenting the capability of the round. Some of it made sense, some of it, hollow points for example, didn't. Why I said paranoia, because it was irrational.
