What gun are you using to shoot the .41 A-Frame?

I assume it is 210 gr bullet, correct?

thanks, dvnv

Yes, it's a 210 grain A-frame. I believe it was from his son's Henry levergun.

if you could get a 45 caliber 300 grain bullet going 2300 or faster FPS in a man portable firearm you would really have something. Velocity seems to matter. Why do all objective studies which I know are totally useless here on the fire show that there is not that much difference in handgun wounding power between 380 and 44 magnum?

Ever hear of a 458 Lott? Anyone that claims not much difference in wounding ability from a 380 to a 44 mag is full of crapr

458 lott is a rifle, you guys just cannot believe that penetration past 14 inches has no bearing on wounding in two legged animals under 350 pounds. Didn't that Muslim yelling alah akbar at fort hood kill dead a bunch of people with a piss ant FN 5.7? If he had been using a 44 magnum I guess they would have been deader. Andy Obama is a muslim himself for calling it workplace violence.

What studies are you talking about specifically? We already have a portable platform that will shoot a 300 grain .45 bullet around 2,000 fps and the results are quite spectacular - ON GAME. Jimmy, you really need to get out and shoot some deer with a .380 and then with a .44 Mag and again tell me there is not much difference between the two with a straight face.

I shot a small buck once with a 240 grain SJHP and nearly blew the off shoulder completely off. Only a small amount of meat and skinn held the shoulder to the deer.

Show me a 380 doing that

2 legged stand up straight studies say they are about the same within 20%, two legged stand up straight animals are pussies compared to a small buck.

Specific studies? Do you have any links? Can you cite a study specifically? Humans and deer are roughly the same size and about as hard to penetrate. It's not a bad comparison, and I'm not talking about their will to live, just the physical attributes.

Pure crap nothing but BS. A stand up 300 pounder compared to a 100 pound small buck. Sure! Laughing my azz off. The wound are not the same in either.

You just made the argument we are all talking about. FN shooting 40gr VMax around 1800 fps. Does a lot more damage than a 22LR shooting 40gr HP at 1200 fps.



And well below 2000 fps. Velocity matters, even under 2K fps.

Velocity and bullet design both matter.

Again you miss the point totally, what alternate universe do you live in? Do you think the 22 LR at 1200 out of a Rifle will do the same damage as the FN 40 grain at 1800?

Im not sure of what studies you speak. However, it doesnt take much real life evidence to know which studies are academic nonsense and which arent. Ive been in the chest cavity of shooting victims of a number of bullet wounds. To think theres not much of a difference bw a 357 mag and a 380 is just laughable. Never have seen a center chest 357 wound in surgery because they are basically already dead. Not so with a 380. To bring that up to a 44 mag is just getting silly. Thats when you just dismiss the studies right away.

People and deer arent much difference toughness wise. Thats why i posted pics of deer.

So you guys actually believe that a 45 ACP with any bullet is more than 20% more lethal than a 9mm with any bullet?

That’s not nearly as absurd as the .380 and .44 Mag being close. Let’s get back on topic.

Can you cite a study?

I dont know how one quantifies percentages of lethality and that there in lies the rub. Academics trying to quantify it is where the problems come in. What i can say is a 45 acp makes a lot deeper and larger hole than a 380. Period and end if story.

I loaded them so they would run out of the levergun where i habe them run out of the freedom arms 41 mag i have. The rifle will give better ballistics but the pistol can be loaded to a much much higher pressure. I do this to get more information on pistol cartridge wound dynamics and since i have 7 kiddos to take hunting i can get alot of info if they shoot pistol chambered carbines when theyre young. My son matt was shooting a henry leveraction to take his first 10 deer and is now transitioning to big bore pistols and has taken a few deer with a 41 mag and a downloaded 454 casull.
