As to the fbi 12" min, sure, i want more. We all want a bullet that goes 60cal + and penetrate more, but that 12" min will do in most instances. I prefer a bullet to exit, but in a crowd, not ideal.

... nothing guarantees success, it just improves your chances. The bullet in the video was darn close to .60 cal, as it expanded into a really nice 'flower'. And it also went 14". I don't think a bullet like that or the one I put out there would tend to overpenetrate, but it would sure do a number in a better than half inch dia hole.
