    The US is not required to carry FMJ's.

    We did not sign the Hague accord

    9mm being cheaper, having less recoil, and allowing more capacity is not assumption

    It is fact

    I adressed your point about autopsies. I reccomend re-reading my post.

    zackmars,

    DoD regulations & long "established policy" (back to when The Department of War still existed) REQUIRE only FMJ/Ball ammo, thus there is NO functional difference in the USA signing/not signing the Hague accords.

    zackmars,

    I asked you HOW MANY autopsies that you had attended & SEEN the results of & you did not respond to that query. = EXPERIENCE always TRUMPS theory.

    yours, satx

    Would love to see evidence of this, because quite a few military units have used JHP ammo OCONUS

    zackmars,

    Get/Read The JAG Corps DA Pam entitled, "The Law of War". -The prohibition is there "in black & white", with the relevant DoD regulation referenced by number.

    yours, satx

    You keep pushing this, i don't know why, do you want me to point out all the logical fallacies in your posts?

    You said nothing compares to remington golden saber, you don't list caliber or bullet weight, and go on to say that ony female agents got 9mm's and didn't use golden saber in that caliber.

    It's pretty clear your "experience" is extremely limited, and of limited value as you are comparing one load to another.


    How many autopsies I've seen? Zero. And honestly given what you've said, your experience isn't much more valuable.


    Amd cost, capacity, recoil is not theory. Which is, as I've said before, what gives 9mm the nod

    Well... not exactly. There is no difference in price in my reloads based on what I payed for the components. My 9mm Kimber Micro has more felt recoil than my much heavier EMP .40, they hold the same number of rounds. In this case not a fact.

    I'm just trying to make a point your assertion 9mm is more effective is not necessarily unassailable. I like them all, the difference between my ability for follow up shots is negligible with my firearms I'm very familiar with but all things being equal the larger caliber is preferable. That is a fact, the other is a preference.

    I don't disagree with why you rationalize 9mm is better for you. I don't agree it's simply superior period.

    You've stated your opinion and your rationale. Nothing wrong with it at all but your insistence no one could possibly see it differently without being wrong is the source of the disagreement and candidly offputting.
