Maybe you should watch this. Around 8:40 he starts talking about how a person will react to a shot with a HP bullet that stays inside the target. I never said a HP would knock a man off his feet, and "knockdown power" vs "stopping power" is semantics. All I mean is the ability to stop the threat.

Seen that, more than once. You are the one who picked the terms, not me. That you are now changing your terms ...
FWIW, if Mass, or any other expert, can accurately predict how a body will react to ANY bullet, they are geniuses. The REAL world is full of cases where perps absorbed several rounds and didn't drop. About the only sure one-shot stop is a medium to large caliber shot right into the heart, the CNS, or an eye - or maybe right into the ear canal.
You do what you please, but I'll keep shooting until the perp drops or I run out of ammo, in which case I will reload and keep shooting. :)

Said in those terms I understand what you were trying to say. I completely agree that a HP that expands properly and dumps all it's energy into a target is going to produce a bit more of a.....smack.
