    Thanks, still not overly impressive. In fact the wound cavity from the .22 Magnum on your website looks better at least in the photos.

    All - do you like the terminal performance better with this cartridge or the SS-195?

    Well, I'm of the school that says penetration is king, expansion is queen.

    That said, I think the modified Barnes Tripple-Shock delivers much better performance then the SS195, especially since it appears to be able to consistently deliver 14"-15" of penetration, being close to the recommended 16-18" penetration of the FBI protocol.

    Thanks again, JE223. Still, the 5.7x28 really doesn't seem to live up to the "super round" hype it has on the internet. According to your old site, the geriatric 7.62x25 Tokarev round is still a better penetrator out of a pistol than the 5.7 is out of a rifle.
