there is a simple physics equation to do this..weight of the bullets combined with speed and figuring they DO hit head on and accounting for surface area and energy transfer (they would still probably just fragment) but you SHOULD on paper mind you...figure which bullet "wins"

I think there will be a cover-up if anyone ever does the test and they both drop straight down because the .45 fanatics can't let it get out that the 9mm stopped the .45,that might suggest that a 9mm has equal stopping power,so we can't let that happen

well it would make sense energy wise...a big slow bullet can be equal to a small fast bullet...its the big AND fast bullets ya gotta watch out for

If both were hollow points, the .45 would swallow up the 9mm and knowing it had saved the day lay down for a little nap. This would happen a little closer to the .45 shooter because of velocity.

Unless of course the .45 was a Golden Sabre or Talon SXT design. Then the .45 would shed most of its jacket which would continue toward the 9mm shooter, scallop out a cookie cutter hole into him (but not very far).

Due to the extreme forces at work at the moment of impact there would undoubtedly be a shower of shrapnel. Because of the .45's larger area, the shower would most likely be directed toward the 9mm shooter as the hollow point of the .45 would contain the shower of 9mm shrapnel.

.45s are not considered to have more stopping power than a 9mm because of their muzzle eenergy. It has to do with how the bullet hits it's target, dissipates all of it's energy, and creates a large wound cavity, where as a 9mm you will tend to have more through and throughs and smaller wound cavities.

So I caution you from trying to do this.

The impact of bullets against metal of substantail thickness causes the lead to liquify so that the bullets would pretty well be shattered pieces of metal that would lose their velocity very fast, neither would continue far after impact, assuming both hit directly head-on.

Since your distance was 10 yds would it be reasonable to assume that both firearms would be sighted in for a somewhat greater distance? If so, it is probable that the projectiles are both rising in this portion of their trajectory. If the inertia were the same would both bullets? not be forced in an upward direction upon impact

If the don't fragment,

the 9mm will try expand to 0.45" and lose the battle of momentum to the 45acp.
