It seems this debate will go on forever.
I'm actually fine w/ a 9mm & good medium wt +P JHP, but there is little benefit for me here in Kalif. The 9mm greatest attribute IMO, lots of rounds in high cap guns, I get only 10rds. Recoil, my splits are just about the same from 9mm to 40 to 45acp, platform matters more than caliber to me.
"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".
