You havent been following rails response. He certainly believes in energy alone as the wounding mechanism. No more energy doesn't always cause more damage, always about the bullet.I don't think anyone here thinks it's energy that kills as though it's some type of force field that incapacitates the target. It's the bullet poking holes in things, but that bullet has energy behind it, otherwise it wouldn't do anything or go anywhere. More energy causes more damage and some of that damage is beyond what the bullet itself hits. How big of a factor is that as far as incapacitation is concerned? Hard to tell but more damage is more effective. To think that somehow doesn't apply to the human body is simply wrong.
