What would make good entry type ammo? What I need is something that has good ballistics close range but would not penatrate in interior walls.

Based on everything I have read, everything goes through interior walls. However, you are looking for light weight and low speed for AR ammo. A few years ago I saved a copy of a post to this board regarding wall penatration tests. Note the disclaimers.

No such thing. The best you can is select a round that minimizes dammage after passing through a wall.

And not enough penetration to reliably reach the blood carring organs & vessels....
