Still makes them small pistol. Just because some retard bean counter & ATK figured they could save 1/10 of a penny loading 45acp w/ SP doesn't make the universal. No SP 41, 44, 45colt. No SP 10mm, not really universal.
"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".
