Simple and to the point except for the penetration statement. One item I would like to add to the three bullet points above is accuracy. If these items are not your priority for either self defense or hunting, it would be my assumption that you are on the wrong forum. Overpenetration is like overkill. While there are several levels of injury, there is only one level of dead.
Comparing a 10MM to a .45 is like comparing Major League Baseball to Softball. One of them anybody can do and the other is strictly for men......JJ
