FBI Rates the Best Caliber for Killing Humans

From the FBI web site, over the
past several years, the number
of deaths inflicted upon LEO by
the BGs, have been decreasing.

Surprisingly, deaths of LEOs, are
caused by the .38special and the
.40S&W, both had six kills each of
LEO through their body amour.

In the civilian world, the lowly
.22cal LR is still the top dog in
kills of any caliber. Of course we
do not wear body amour, but the
stats speak for themselves.

The gathering of the FBI data is
what has been submitted to them
by participating agencies.

Could be that bigger is not always
better, like in .22cal LR vs. .45ACP!

Ed

I go by the rule of "if i put two in your chest and one in your head, does it really matter what caliber it is?

but Ed, those are some interesting findings, thanks for sharing

38 special THROUGH body armor? I gotta wonder how close those shootings have to be for a .38 to go through body armor. Might have to get some kevlar and do a few experiments.

The problem is that they don't come to this conclusion by equal shots fired by different calibers. What I'm saying is that they are leaving out vital information such as how many shots at and actual hits were there from different calibers? If say 1000 shots were taken with .22's and 10 of them were fatal but only 7 shots were taken with .45 and all 7 were fatal then the conclusion would still be that .22's were more deadly.

Yes it is like the old statement that it is more dangerous to drive within 10 miles of your home because that is where most accidents happen. Well most of us do most of our driving within 10 miles of our homes, so of course that is where most accidents occur.
