    The one that shows the depth of penetration and wound channle and proves that 9mm is almost as good as .45

    depth-wise it's similar, but the "damage" along the way is much more with .40S&W and .45ACP. Look at how much larger

    it's almost 30% faster than the next fastest round. not that surprising, considering.

    P07r0457 & Ebtromba you both need to follow the tactical forums link and do some reading. The "damage" that is wowing you is temporary cavity and is not what we're looking for from handgun wounds. If someone looks at that image and goes "wow, look at .357 sig" you can be quite certain that they need to learn more about ballistics. I recommend you start with the "FBI handgun wounding and effectiveness" paper linked in about the 2nd paragraph of that post.

    If you actually did some research on it you'd find about a millionty articles that have been published in medical and ballistic journals, stuff from the FBI, etc. If it makes you feel better you could get hard copies from the library instead of reading them from the evil internets. Just trying to help you out since you clearly don't know what you're looking at. It might save your life one day to know a little about this stuff.

    If you search for gelatin tests you can probably find some for your favorite round that will actually give you measurements that are even more useful than just the image. If you do start using them to help pick what you carry its important to look for calibration data for the gelatin and be sure its within spec. Alot of people post gelatin test results but the calibration is off and the gel is too soft...they didn't keep it cold, etc. You might wind up with a round that doesn't penetrate as deeply as you thought it would then.

    :big grin:

    cool

    I'm a 9mm man myself right now, but this is mainly so I can afford to practice alot.

    some good advice at the bottom of that page though.

    The keys are:

    -- Cultivate a warrior mindset
    -- Invest in competent, thorough initial training and then maintain skills with regular ongoing practice
    -- Acquire a reliable and durable weapon system
    -- Purchase a consistent, robust performing duty/self-defense load in sufficient quantities (at least 1000 rounds)then STOP worrying about the nuances of handgun ammunition terminal performance.
