Here's the experiment , shoot an animal with a large caliber 44 or 45 with both RN and SWC . Push your finger into the hole . You have to use a little force to go into the RN hole but no force at all with the SWC hole !!! The SWC is cutting a full caliber hole just like it does with paper while the RN pushes aside tissues temporarily ! Elmer Keith is right again .
Then why don't people use SWC for self defense in every caliber? Seems like a better deal to me
There are many things that factor in on this question, so there is no set answer; however, as a general rule, most permenant wound cavities are LARGER than the bullet diameter.
Is this the case with round nose bullets, SWC's, or both?
