Issue being, these magazines will not feed hollowpoint ammo. But are designed to work well with only ball ammo. Conversely, most magazines are designed to work with a wide variety of ammo, but at least on my gun, would fail to do so with absolutely certainty.

I have no hesitation to use JHP in my 1911. Iíve put hundreds downrange mostly Federal HSTís. Tested in a bunch of my mags. No issues.

Thanks for sharing the story. What part was the illegal part - him carrying?

Cant say anything about the "knockdown power" but No. Recoil is based in part on the weight or mass of the weapon. Momentum, energy and knockdown power clearly are not. A 147g or 230g bullet fired will develop a known, measurable constant "power". The recoil from these exact same loads and firings will vary based upon the weight of the weapon. The recoil of the 9mm from a compact handgun or carbine is greater than that of an 8 lb rifle. Adding mass to thee weapon decreases recoil without affecting "power". Felt recoil, measured recoil, calculated recoil, any recoil you can call it.
