With an adequate sized bullet, more muzzle velocity generally gives you more energy, the more energy you have the more you have to work with. With modern bonded hollow points, you can move lighter bullets faster, mushrooming them to make a bigger hole and the energy allows them to penetrate deeper. 2 excellent examples of this are the 125 Grain Bonded gold dot loaded in the 357 Sig which gives you 1450 FPS from a Glock 31, and the 155 Grain gold dot 10 MM load moving at 1500 FPS.
