Heavy/slow vs light/fast is kind of like torque vs horsepower. They both do work but in different ways.

A milisecond between when the bullet hits home and if placed where it should be a milisecond from death. Might just be me but this question is a moot point unless your a supper ninja that moves so fast where supper sonic and sub sonic matters. Yep the 45 round is slower but unless you can slow time it will end up exactly where indtend a milisecond latter.

indeed but im pretty sure your chances of surviving the CBR collisision are significantly higher than the mack truck even if they are both pretty slim.

thats why the .40 is such a good middle ground between the 9mm and the .45. 9mm is the CBR, .45 is the mack truck...that makes the .40 an GMC sonoma
