Be careful with high velocity rounds against pins, I've seen shots come
back at you.

Bowling pin shooters (its a handgun sport) use flat-pointed, heavy rounds to
'smack' the pins back off the table. I can't reccomend any FMJ round for
sport, use a soft-point round (like the Wolf 7.62 x 39) if you must use a
for a handgun sport!
