I read a "stopping power" article recently, that focused on the people who were shot, rather than on the cartridge that stopped them. That is, the numbers focused on what proportion of people were stopped with a single shot, what proportion with two shots, THEN looked at the cartridges used. It was interesting, in that of those stopped with one round, it didn't really matter what hit them. Most people are stopped if shot once. Only when more than one round was required did caliber/cartridge start to make a difference. I'll see if I can find it . . .
