Another 45/40 can of worms
I currently carry 165 gr. 40S&W. I am looking to get a short barreled .45. I have heard that the big bullets may not expand reliably, so smaller weights are recommended. I'm guessing 185 gr. is what I want.
So... other than the hole that the bullet comes out of, how much difference, really, is there between 165 gr. 40S&W and 185 gr. .45?
Won't the increased velocity of the 40S&W offset the added weight of the .45 lite?
Should I just stay with my 40, or will I truly get an "upgrade" with a short .45? Which is better, especially since I will take a round count loss from 14 to 11 if I switch??
