PENETRATION OF .32 ACP WITH 71gr remington

Hi Guys,

I am shooting with a 3 inch barrel auto pistol some rounds of .32 acp on a wooden table and I am getting a penetration of only 1.2 inches (shooting from 10 yards).

I think it is a very little penetration for self defense purposes, so maybe there is something wrong with the powder load (Vectan BA9, 2.4 grains) or the barrel or something, or maybe it is absolutely normal and I sholudn´t be worrying about it.

How deep is the penetration of a .32 acp in a wooden board in some of you use this caliber?, -I have read in some web pages that 4 to 6 inches!-, is is true?

Thanks Guys
