You got it! The whole thing is about energy. Dumping the energy inside your target/adversary is what you want. If it goes all the way through and keeps going than not all the energy was absorbed by the target. When I was younger I thought just the opposite.

Lots of people think that the faster the round the more likely you will have over penetration. Generally that is not true. In my experience we had 9mm fired from a H&K 9mm SMG SD (950-1100 fps.) punch through people while a Fed Match .308 BTH (sniper rifle shot 2750-2800 fps) totally disentergrated and used up all its energy. Ballistics is a very intersting subject. There is a lot to it.

Socialism rewards mediocrity. Communism enforces it.
