In my experience heavy bullets penetrate more than lighter bullets. My 44 magnum launches 185 grain pills at very high velocities. I never had a 185 grain pill pass through a hog. However with 240 grain rounds I would get almost 100% pass through. This was with significantly less velocity. Now, with the 310 grain pills I have never had one that didn't pass though even though the velocity is almost 800 fps less than the 185 grain bullets. All were hard cast bullets, loaded up until extraction got sticky then backed off a touch. 300 win mag with Berger VLD projectiles had very similar results as bullet mass increased. The 210 grain VLD is pretty wild.
