If I remember correctly, the Mythbusters found that slower handgun rounds travelled through water the farthest; several feet or more, I think. But high-powered rifle rounds penetrated the least because the rounds fragmented almost immediately and the low-mass fragments didn't travel very far.

Basically, they found that higher-velocity bullets generally travelled less distance through the water.
