    I see a lot of Montana Gold HP used at competitions. Are they good for self defense also?

    Negative. Not designed for that type of expansion.

    Better than a FMJ, but as Ron notes, not reliable expanders. I have tested them in wetpack, they can expand nicely, fragment or not expand at all. SHTF bullets, sure why not, EDC, nope.
