Incapacitation with a 5.56

Hey Mas:

I saw a Wikipedia article that talked about a lack of stopping power with the 5.56 round. Is it recommended to shoot until the threat drops with this round? I was thinking that being a rifle round that one shot would probably stop the threat. After reading the article, maybe not. Will my Speer 55 grain JSP offer good terminal performance? Would it offer better stopping power than my 9mm?

THe various 55 grain JSP .223s have performed well on unshielded targets, though they may not be the very best choice for shooting through barriers. They SHOULD produce distinctly more wound volume than any 9mm pistol round I can thing of, but "should" and "will" are two different things. Whatever the weapon, shoot until the threat is neutralized remains a cardinal rule.

best,
Mas
