At the 50-75m that a Hornet is typically used, the 650 ft lbs of muzzle-energy is down to more like 550 ft lbs. yet it still does a fine job on feral dogs. Any 9x19 luger pistol can be readily rechambered to 356 TSW, and can then drive a 55 gr bullet to 2200 fps, in a 3" barrel. That is almost 600 ft lbs. The 16 oz, 6" long Kahr PM 9 pistol easily fits in a front pants pocket rig, and hits about 3x as hard as do plus P 158 gr lhp's from a 2" .38 special. The lhp's dont expand in flesh at a paltry 800 fps, ya see. So the bullet exits with over 50 of the 250 ft lbs that it hit the target with.
