I started to write in about the flesh and bone I've seen mangled by magnum projectiles and how deep and well they penetrate. How they are much more potent than the Lead Roundnose .38's the NYPD once used. Then I remembered the man I saw before with my own eyes, who got shot in the face with a .44 Magnum LSWC and kept going. His face looked just like the way you'd imagine/or have actually seen before, from being shot by a large caliber handgun, yet he kept going and survived.

The man above, not the one I mentioned, but another, looks like he should be dead, but there he sits, big as life. He could still pull a trigger.

So yes...
