I have always favored the 180's myself but now I am rethinking my logic. Also this type of information highly favors older rounds that have had to be used enough to generate enough information.
I've said it before and i'll say it again, Evan Marshall & Evan Sanow's "stopping power" books are complete BS...
Choose a cartridge that features 100% positive feeding, excellent accuracy, and good terminal ballistics, and stop worrying about MUZZLE ENERGY, MUZZLE VELOCITY and stopping power
See my sig below for the definition of stopping power ↓
