We do require all armed members of the team to use the same ammunition. I’m curious if others do the same and if so, how they decided which ammunition to use.
We’ve standardized on Federal Hydra-shok, the original version, not the HST…but I recently heard and substantiated that they fail to mushroom after penetrating sheetrock or even denim…then they over penetrated. I think we’ll change to more modern ammo.
From personal experience, it isn’t a requirement of the Security Team at Foothills Bible Church. But there are recommended brands and styles of ammunition. I believe everyone carries hollow point ammo and it isn’t unusual to see Hornady brands. Since the team carries a variety of weapon calibers and brands of weapons, the team is allowed, though, to make their own decision within reason. And as a side point, they must achieve weapons proficiency status with the weapon they carry using target ammo provided by the church.
