It don't matter what your intended target is if you consider the variables, choices and don't let myth, emotion, and misinformation influence you can come up with a 'best' cartridge for any intendted use. The problem is MOST people do not have the training, experience, and OPEN MIND to come up with a logical answer.
In other words if you use the scientific method and have the right info you can increase the probability of using the right weapon/caliber/bullet combination for ANY intended purpose, but as I said above VERY few people have the ability to do this and when they do they are invariably belittled and put down by those who disagree.
