I live in a 10rd mag state. MyXDTAC is the same size as a G19/23/32, same rd count. So I prefer bigger holes. Any JHP tech that makes the 9mm better also makes the 45 better.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
