"Comparing the momentum of two of the most commonly encountered loads is "hyperbole?" Um, okay."
You compare YOUR chosen load in .45 ACP to whose exactly in 9mm? The weakest one you could find that I wouldn't use nor recommend? Then claim it's one of the most commonly encountered? Maybe check to see which 9mm load is more commonly used in LE than any other and I think you'll find a factory rated velocity of 1220 FPS. Their rating, not mine. So, skew the facts if that floats your boat. Even the most elementary student of physical science can understand that the 230 gr. bullet at 850 FPS yields a higher momentum that a 124 gr. bullet at 1130 or 1220 FPS since the 230 has nearly twice the mass.
Had you absorbed the greater point rather than cherry picking for a point you thought you might rebut as a stand alone comment, it might have raised a question like: in a span of 5 seconds which cartridge is more likely to allow the greatest number of hits in the thoracic cavity. Obviously, the supposed status of, "I carry the superior 230 gr. JHP in .45 ACP" is supposed to wrangle a feeling of awe from the readers?
And despite you having never raised some point or other, it can still be valid.
You said it here: "Physicists past and present are the only group that has ever really tried to think outside the box, yet they're the least of the groups to be relied upon. I keep mentioning Quantitative Ammunition Selection for a reason. It is based on physical and mathematical certainties which can be PROVEN."
Was I speaking Norwegian or something, because in that statement: "I keep mentioning Quantitative Ammunition Selection for a reason. It is based on physical and mathematical certainties which can be PROVEN."
I am clearly speaking in regard to the physical and mathematical certainties being provable.
And to jtg452, thanks for the link! I'll gladly post it again since you took the time to find it.
What connection it has with the topic of this thread escapes me, but hey, I like Mike Venturino and always have. As far as firearms history, yeah, he qualifies. But I believe you said PHYSICISTS and Historians.
