Would the punch bullet or the Barnes buster be considered a full metal jacketed bullet? If so they would be illegal here in Ky.for game animals.

All handgun Bullets sold in the United States meet the legal definition of ?expanding bullets?. Non expanding handgun bullets are not legal in the US.

I WOULD CONSIDER THE PUNCH AND BARNES BUSTER AS FMJ's. IN KY. THEN YOU MAY HAVE TO OPT FOR CAST WFN, WLN, TYPE BULLETS. THE BUREAUCRATS IN KY. WERE OBVIOUSLY TRYING TO OUTLAW MILITARY BALL BUT IN DOING SO OUTLAWED SOME INCREDIBLE HANDGUN KILLING BULLETS, TOO BAD.

That may be true in theory, but I'd rather not take a chance arguing that theory with an officer. Bullets used in MN must have some exposed lead or a hollow point.

It is not a theory it is a fact. The Punch Bullet is technically considered a hollow point by BATF

Just priced them and Punch bullets aren't going to happen here. So I just ordered some Cast Performance WFNGC bullets this morning.

They're not really necessary until really large animals (with correspondingly large trophy fees) are on the menu. JMHO.

If I get the opportunity to pursue something that large I won't worry about bullet price!

If only more people thought the way you do! Many want to cut costs in all the wrong places and in my humble opinion, this is the last place to cut cost when your hunt is costing you five figures. You are an enlightened and logically thinking individual!
