Typically, a FMJ bullet doesn't possess the same energy transference that you see with hollow points. It doesn't take a lot of power to kill a coon if you know where the bullet is going to land. I prefer the hp's but have used solids and fmj's in certain circumstances.

Your call bud. If you know for a fact that you can plant one in the head, then I wouldn't give a rat's patute what the others said. O0
