you dont know much about how military's around the world choose there weapons do you,,,
no military uses the best of the best in terms of caliber in any weapon,,, most really are under powered to be honest
look at the usa's infantryman rifles for a quick example 30/30, upgraded to 30.06, got wimpy with .308, got really pathetic with 5.56
or police going from 44mag to 357mag all the way down to the wimpy 9mm (in comparison)
your comparing weapons meant to wound we are looking at killing power,, but like stated some where else, all pistol rounds are barley up for the task
