Response to jimmy the one (Reply #64)

71. A Glaser in .223 would be kind of redundant

since 40gr .223 already penetrates like birdshot (~1 interior wall or ~6" in gelatin). A lot of LE agencies won't even use 40-55 grain .223 JHP in SWAT use because it doesn't penetrate *enough*, and instead use 62gr SP and whatnot.

The AR in my safe is loaded with Federal 55gr JHP, which penetrates less than 115gr 9mm JHP in both drywall and gelatin, and less than 00 buckshot would.
