If you hit something really important, most major defensive calibers will do just fine. If you don't, then differences between calibers could matter. In a messy or entangled defensive encounter in which you might only be able to put one into a thigh, shoulder, hip, gut, etc., then bigger or more energetic could be more helpful.

Look, gel is awesome and tells us a lot. People and animals are not made of gel. We have bone, various tissues, and all sorts of structures. Hydrostatic shock is usually a red herring in terms of handguns. Sometimes, a defensive encounter comes down to destroying or disrupting flesh, bone, mechanically important structures, etc.
