    Hey Mas:

    Could you view the "Dr's view of gunshot wounds" in caliber corner? Fast forward the video to 17:00. There is a .40 cal bullet that on Xray penetrated the sternum and then stopped after about one inch of penetration. What is your take on this? I am using 180 gr HST's in .40 and 124+P GDHP's in 9mm. These two rounds per you have incredible street records. I just need to hear you say that my rounds won't stop at the one inch mark.

    OK, Ron:

    Neither HST 180 grain .40 nor Gold Dot 124 grain +P 9mm will stop an inch into a human, unless either (A) the bullet has been slowed by a substantial barrier first, or (B) your opponent is from the Planet Krypton.
