Same could be said about most of you guys, like it or not.
So all things being equal expansion aside what would leave a larger wound channel, 9mm or .45? More chances to hit a vital? Wouldn’t a slightly larger wound channel also give you a slightly better chance of hitting a vital organ?
Exactly. Fully capable of doing the job is capable enough. A .40 is capable, a 9 is capable, as is a .45. Past a certain point, a wound is a wound. Hopefully, I never have to be on either side of that scenario so it actually all boils down to just having cool toys.
Compare a 9mm 1911 fullsize mag to a .45 acp mag. A 9mm mag holds 9-10 while a .45 acp holds 7-8.
Have you ever held a double stack .45?
9mm nearly matches the ballistics of .45 while allowing more capacity, being cheaper, and having more plentiful choices in not only loadings, but firearms as well.
.45 is only like 2 years older than 9mm, if it was better, the market would show less of a gap in sales.
Not compared to another round
And if thats a miss as well, that's just another hole to bleed from
Forgive the temporary lapse, for a moment there I forgot you were always right and your opinion the only valid position. What could I have been thinking?
Golden saber is also avalible in 9mm, and is a JHP. Not sure why you talk as if it isn't.
While post mortems can offer valuable insight, it isnt the whole story.
Im wrong lots of times, but some critical thinking kinda supports my posistion.
The easy way to solve it would be to limit it to a single shot.
Take cost, and round count out of it.
Which caliber would you rather use?
Not directed towards anyone in particular.
The 9x19mm is DEFINITELY an INFERIOR STOPPER when Ball ammo is compared to Ball ammo from the GM in .45ACP.
(Because of international agreements, FMJ is ALL that military personnel may carry "on the job".)
ADDENDA: YES, I've held/fired a double-stack .45 on the range. My hands aren't large enough to shoot it well, so I've never owned one.
Further, during the "Interwar era" & when we still had troops in the Philippines fighting the Moro, the 9x19mm and/or .38ACP (The USN had some Colt's GM in .38ACP but NOT in .38 Super.) was found to NOT STOP those fanatic native warriors, while the standard 230 grain FMJ .45ACP would "put them down for the count" & frequently GYD right then/there.
