    OK, I'm just going to go with the assumption that it has to be a round out of a handgun--and I'll even go with one that I own...

    It'd be a 325grn DPX out of my .500 at about 1800fps and 2300 ft/lbs.

    Actually, out of a handgun I carry...if it was only one shot...I'd sure hope I was carrying my G21 with 230+P TAP that day.

    From a handgun, I'd be happiest with a 230 grain expanding bullet from a .45 ACP.

    I have always trained to 2 COM + 1 Head, repeat as necessary; it is almost muscle memory.
    Statistics show that gunfight end with few rounds shot because most of the people involved do not have any training: GG against BG.
    However when you have trained people, and good equipment, numbers change.
    Therefore I don't see the OP premises having a decent probability.

    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    Accurate sums things up nicely; however, I would want to be accurate with one of the rounds that has a rating of at least 90% in this chart:
