energy. since the subsonic .22lr, fired from a rifle, still has that much energy left at 100m, and since 90+ % of the NONACCIDENTAL hits in combat occur at 100m or less, why would anyone "think" a silenced 10-22 Ruger AINT lethal, ferchrissakes? Even with "mere" leg hits, the cutting of a major blood vessel is still pretty likely, along with shatter of femur, nerve damage, etc. Aiming at hip or upper thigh, in ACTION, will OFTEN mean a gut or pelvis or privates hit, with high likelihood of death, if not in a GOOD hospital within a VERY few minutes.

Uh huh,

is 60ft-lbs their floor for a lethal projectile or is it used for the assessment of a projectile to determine it's possibility of producing a fatal wound?

Why don't you provide a citation for where you are getting this from?

Hmmmmmmmmm?

No, when the military refers to a "lethal" wound, they mean a wound that requires medical attention before the enemy soldier can resume hostilities.

So the .25 ACP is 'lethal' enough for gunkid, right? After all, thats 73 fb. In fact, I bet the .308 remains 'lethal', by gunkid's definition, way way past the range of the 5.56.
