Very interesting and informative video.
Muzzle Velocity and Energy are more important than Grain/Mass in a Hand Gun Cartridge.
The 'Temporary Wound Cavity' is very well explained.
Where one hits (Accuracy) is more important than how much (Grain) one hits with.
Accuracy is the main factor governing Stopping Power.
The video ends very well with emphasis on Reliability of a Cartridge/Hand Gun.
In a self defence situation, choice between different Revolvers/Pistols available would largely depend on what a person is comfortable with.
In India this is limited due to the import restrictions and the cost of Firearms.
An average Indian Licence holder also does not get enough practice (largely due to restriction on ammunition quota and the price of ammunition).
All being said, I believe a .45ACP Cartridge will definitely cause more damage than .22 Cartridge.
(Assuming both are being fired from a Pistol).
