SD ammo today is designed around the FBI criteria of penetration and expansion.There are many variables and the makers can do almost anything but the criteria now are the FBI's .Hunting bullets for large game usually require more penetration. My favorite for deer is the 44 mag Speer JSWCHP , the only bullet I recovered penetrated 25-30" and opened to 50 cal ! For defense in the 44 mag I would use a LSWCHP at 900-1000 fps. For SD penetration of 18" is more than enough.
