    Online Ballistics Resource - Where?

    I've read that the FBI's ratings/tests are the most widely used and/or respected. I've seen the FBI "Stopping Power" (or whatever they're called) charts for multiple calibers in a couple books at the store, but I want to know where I can see the most recent figures online. I've had no success finding them w/ Google.

    Also, the FBI's figures are based upon their research of how many rounds it took law enforcement to "stop" perps in real life scenarios, correct?

    My immediate curiosity is .357 SIG vs .45 GAP (if such data is available for such a new caliber).




    Thanks in advance...

    Don't think I've ever heard of the .40 GAP. Do you mean .45 GAP?

    I just wish they would do some new stuff.

    I was so hopeful back in 2006, but it was only one issue.
