    some people have shitty luck.

    A Georgia man shot and killed 3 masked teens as they tried to rob him at his home, police say - CNN

    Yes just having a gun is a huge deterrent.

    That said I have seen many people shot with a .22 rimfire and it really is a deadly round.

    i've seen it claimed that .22 rimfires have killed more people in the u.s. than any other caliber.

    can't confirm it, though.

    What caliber has killed the most people? - Quora

    Anyone know if those were Hollowpoints or not? I would have thought the first drywall would have deformed a HP bullet.

    No, usually the corners will be covered in plywood or 1x10's, and the rest will be sheathed with something like plywood, OSB, or a laminated hard board/insulating foam, and/or fiber/cement board like Hardy..

    About 95% of the time the mere knowledge you are armed is ample deterrent. When it isn't, you're probably in for a fight.

    That was true fifty years ago and still is with the reinactment crowd but Modern Muzzle Loading bullets are as advanced as any others on the market.

    For serious ML hunters the Copper Jacketed or All Copper bullets dominate the market.

    Both are hollowpoints, but they do not typically expand in dry wall.

    Both the Stingers and Velocitors are HP's but keep in mind they are much higher velocity than most of the cheap plinkers on the market.

    I'd have to look to be sure but I think the Stingers are around 1350-1,400FPS and the velocitor around 1,500.
