Most manuf cherry pick their vel. So they are not being 100% deceitful, just generously optimistic. You can find guns w/ "fast bbls" & get higher vel, but they really should shoot them in at least two diff guns of the same length & post avg vel. That doesn't look as sexy on the box or webiste though.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
