Dr. Martin Fackler, who developed the 10% ordnance gelatin solution commonly used today to test ammunition terminal performance and wounding effects, has repeatedly stated that the street is the ultimate laboratory. The wound profiles produced in properly prepared and calibrated ordnance gelatin have been verified and validated against thousands of actual shootings.
And that is what the morgue monsters found. Autopsy does not show how it did in the street cause all a autopsy is good for is DEAD PEOPLE.

Most people survive gun shots. Hint hint....

The police reports of the incidents matter so much more cause alot of them were shot, stopped, but still lived.

Well, here is a thought. During the Civil War, Confederate General Leonidas K. Polk was shot while observing the enemy. According to one eyewitness, he was not knocked down, but stood for a few seconds and then fell.

The weapon was a 20 pdr. Parrott rifle; the projectile was 3 2/3 inches in diameter and weighed around 140,000 grains, just a bit bigger than a .45 ACP bullet.
Well yes but a certain James Butler Hickok killed an adversary at 75 yards with one shot from a .36 Navy Colt. And later he faced five men in a barn and killed all five with those .36 Navy Colts. He had real good shot placement.

There are freak incidences where people have survived crowbars blown through their heads to. But in GENERAL, larger diameter cartridges tend to stop better. More powerful rounds tend to stop better. And more precise shot placement tends to stop better.

But just case a Parrott cannon ball didn't stop one person, or a puny .36 Navy Colt drop'em dead, does not mean stopping power does not exist.
