Muzzle Energy

If it were only muzzle velocity, all of the atomic bullets (aka atomic & subatomic particles with measurable mass), moving at over 100,000 miles per SECOND would have killed us all eons ago.
Conversely a 20 ton steam roller moving at 5 feet per second has significant kinetic / "muzzle energy" but near 0 muzzle velocity, but has enough energy to inflict significant damage.
