Well it doesn;t have to be more than half full but enough so a double charge is clearly visible. That rules out TG for sure, BE, ect. If you like uberfast poqders, go for loft like Clays, RedDot, WST, etc. Bulky medium burners will over flow a double or nearly so. Unique, Universal, PP, etc.
"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".
