im going to go out on a limb here and correct me if i am wrong,,, when i hit a deer with a 130g .270 win,, it almost always goes completely threw but the hydrostatic shock of the bullet any where near some thing vital ensures a kill,,, there have been 3 occasions in my life that i have gotten two coyotes with one bullet as well and both drop on the spot
in a self defense situation you really want to hit the target as hard as you can and leave the largest possible "permanent" wound channel possible with out the over penetration of a high speed bullet cause in that situation a double kill could be murder
sure a high powered rifle would work better than any pistol round in causing instant capacitation but there are great risk in using such a weapon
im not good with words but im sure some one here will understand what i am trying to say and possibly put it in better words
