There is no such "leap" to be made.

Testing in such mediums (gelatin, water) yields measurable, recordable, repeatable data (not anecdotal heresay) such as average expansion, penetration depth, and amount of tissue damaged in the wound track which are indicators of performance and effectiveness.

After that, what that particular bullet design hits is what matters and that cannot be predicted.
