THE issue. we've had "deep penetrating" .44 cap and ball, .45 Long Colt, .45 ACP ball for nearly 200 yrs now, and all are WELL PROVEN to not be worth a hoot. On the other hand, we have about 30 odd years of "only" 8-10" of penetration with 223 softpoiints, and DOCUMENTED cases of these rounds failures are VERY rare, given chest hits. Like 1 in 50 or less. :) It's EASY to prove that the 223 sp is FAR superior to .45 ball on dogs, or hogs, or deer. No reason at all to think that anything changes when men are shot.

You're comparing apples to oranges with rifle to pistol calibers. also you seem to forget that I've killed hogs with 9mm, 45acp and 7.62x25 as well as with the 223.

Come up with a better argument.
