Faster bullet, or more energy?
Just doing a little research on some .45ACP/Auto ammunition, and I found some Federal Hydra-Shoks that look/sound really impressive.
A 165gr JHP with 1014fps at 25yd, 377ftlb at 25yd.
Also, A 230gr JHP with 882fps at 25yd, 397frlb at 25 yd.
My question is which would be better? I don't see 20ftlb making THAT much of a difference. (Also, to be fair, when I 'hear' ftlbs, I think torque) But, still, faster lighter bullet, or slower 'harder' bullet?
I know the heavier bullet will have more recoil than the lighter, but, I don't see it being THAT different. Other than having the weight of a .32 more than the other.
