Well, there is pretty significant difference in a small, fast bullet in regards to a rifle round versuses a small fast bullet in a pistol round.

Jeff Cooper wrote, and I whole heartedly agree with this, that the rifle is an offensive instrument, that one uses when the likelihood of a shooting will be high and shot placement is important. A pistol however, is a defensive instrument and is carried "just in case." I want a pistol round that is going to reliably stop a fight soonest. The .45 ACP has a pretty good track record of that.
