Overanalyzing?? No. A simple question. And, a simple, non-sarcastic response will do. Thank you. But, if you needed a chuckle to start off your day, I am glad to have been of assistance, FALPhil.
I don't have the personal knowledge. So, I asked here.
I fully understand that a 9mm carbine is a close range tool, geared for personal protection, maybe a small varmint or two, and plinking. If I want to reach out to a larger animal or situation, I have appropiate longguns to handle such.
My main concern is with a lighter weight JHP designed for a handgun from a longer barrel. Would they lose much weight after impact? Or, because of the velocity and, I assume, more expansion would they have decreased penetration?
Mobuck, thank you for your useful response.
