    In other words I dont think expanding bullets in pistol calibers are likely to stop aggression any quicker in the short term than a non-expanding one.

    That being said jhp's are best for 9mm and similar power levels as long as they arent big-expanders that cut penetration heavily.

    I respect your opinion but disagree. A larger wound channel allows more bleeding which leads to a faster incapacitation. Also a larger bullet has more potential to nick an artery or any Oregon near the bullet patch. Basically a .75 caliber bullet destroys more tissue than a .355 one.

    The odds are small and even then the person shot wont know it and can still fight.

    For LE where events are often far longer it makes more sense.

    For the average CC guy it almost never goes that long and the shot BG either quits or needs braining. There just isnt the wait and see if they bleed out like some LE events.

    Oh, I enjoy our discussions.

    I think weve been doing this since "shootersforum" or "shooterstalk" or whatever it was in the 1990's as well as Glocktalk and that David DiFabio forum way back!
