We have informal pin shoots at 15 yds. Is hollow point ammo better than ball. ball is cheaper but doesn't seem as accurate as the more expensive hps.

HP will work better than FMJ because the edge/wall of the hollow point will "bite" into the pin when shot off center. FMJ will glance off the pin when shot off center without transfering full energy to the pin.

Back when I used to take pin shooting seriously I used to load 45ACP Federal 230gr JHP bullets to about 900 fps.
