What I'm seeing is that at 700fps the 230gr 45 crushes roughly twice as much tissue as the 115gr 9mm. However, that is handicapping in favor of the 45, since the 9mm is likely to be traveling more like 1000fps on impact, at which speed it is crushing 2/3 as much tissue.
So, what remains is there is still room to disagree. If only one shot will hit, make mine a 45 (out of those two). However my "plan" would not likely involve one shot if (God forbid) required to exercise said plan.
