The real difference between 9mm,.357 Sig,40 S&W, .45 ACP

I was wanting to know how much difference there was between some of the different Cal. and I found this. I guess there all about the same. I still love my 40 S&W.

It looks like they all penetrated the same, but the disruption of tissue is greater when you look at the 357 Sig, 40 and 45. I would feel good about using 9mm, though.

I have seen all these tests.. blah blah velocity blah blah enery blah blah

personally I like the 45, it can take a rabbits head off at point point blank range. One time I was shooting rabbits with my Sig 9mm... it took 4 shots before the thing fell over.
