I've seen some high speed gel testing where the bullet appears to be sure that it is going to punch out of the back side of the gel but the gel stretches so much that it retains the bullet. Skin works the same way. Even if it were to punch through it would likely not do much damage to someone, between the extremely reduced velocity and (hopefully) the expanded size. This is assuming the FBI range of 12-18" of penetration. If we're talking the typical 24-28" penetration of FMJs, forget about it, that sucker is gonna keep right on going.
