Does anyone really think that differences in terminal effect can explain why in this study, it took on average, fewer .22LR rounds to incapacitate someone than .45ACP rounds?
I have asked before whether this data was adjusted for target distance, and no one seems to know. My working theory is that it is not, and that the smaller calibers were more commonly close shots, like contact distance or nearly so. That is at least somewhat the nature of the carry guns that take .22 and .25 caliber ammo. Just a thought, though - haven't dug deep enough to substantiate my idea.
