Last year I had a little Walther Model 8 .25 that used to be a backup for a investigator (wished now I had never sold it) and I decided to do a little ballistics test. I compared it with a .22 Long Rifle pistol. At 7 yards I took 4 gallon jugs filled with water. The .22 went through two, stopped in number 3 and flattened right out. The .25 zipped through all 4 jugs and never stopped and I never found it. I did a little digging on the .25 and found a few histories where the .25 dropped more than one person in their tracks. Granted, it isn't up to par with the .380 or the .38 Special, but it beats the .22 and it's better than nothing.
