    hey, i get to pick up my .40 cal on thursday, and i have rounds and targets ready to go, but tonight i bought one of those metal spinning targets, made for calibers up to .44, but it says use only soft nosed bullets, i know it may sound dumb, but i have winchester, 165 grain fmj rounds, would that be considered soft nosed? is that enough info to tell, what wouldnt be considered soft nosed? thanks
