Has anyone done tests on cadavers, or large animal carcasses?
It's been done for archery, on deer and pigs.
The results there were as expected, the bow and arrow makers of the late medieval period knew what they were doing.
And what worked for them is still valid.
If it weren't for the restrictions on ammo design for the military, no doubt there would be plenty of studies on modern ammo.
But, as it stands, the only info available from the military is for "approved" ammo.
How about studies from police coroners, maybe?
Probably the best approach is to just rely on rapid fire accuracy, instead of the bullet.
