    there's a way to settle which one causes the most tissue destruction and delivers the most shock, and that's by shooting animals with both. you will be VERY unimpressed with the .45 230 gr load, if you will do this. It's going too slow to expand. the exit holes look just like the entrance holes. Don't take my word for it. there's plenty of armadillos, chucks, jackrabbits, skunks, possums, coons, nutria, etc to shoot. The inventor of the Hydroshok himself, Tom Brysinki, said that if a hp doesn't expand in 2-3" of tissue, it's not likelh to expand at all.If you shoot larger animals, like feral dogs, you will be even LESS impressed with the .heavier .45 jhp's. I guarantee it.
