A lot of PDs are using duty ammo that avgs about 15-18 inches in the FBI test series (16-20 inches in bare/clothed gel) w/o any overpenetration problems. Loads like the 230/45, 125/357SIG, and 124/9 +P Gold Dots for example.

Even a peripheral hit w a low pen load can exit. Hitting bodies at odd angles and/or hitting arms first can mean 18 inches w/o exiting.
