Tell us please, in just a few words or maybe lead us to a link that explains the reasons and ramifications of the different grain weights for handguns. For different grains is more powder required? Also for reloading why the different head shaped bullets?

LET IT BE KNOWN, THIS CONVERSATION IS FOR GENERAL ACCEPTED DEFINITIONS. TO BE USED ONLY AS A GUIDELINE FOR BEGINNERS INFORMATION.

Thanks, ammo newbie

Is the same amount/strength of powder used for all grains? How to determine "best" configuration for Self protection use and Range use?

I'm for the most energy, its the shock that kills... you can poke a hole through a deer and it might just stand there and look at you... you put a crater in one and it will likely be planted.
So, for those of us that don't have background general knowledge of what you're talking about expand on what you use please. Obviously there are realistic size limits too. What are they.

There, I understand that better. Thanks

Considering POST #1 dis-qualifier (general comments) would you and/or other posters mind making some suggestions for self protection ammo. For instance what a buyer reads on the end of the box.

So, a longer burning powder to give the bullet a longer push and not a heavy bullet is, in your opinion, the way to go? Looks like a 90 grain then would give more shock value and considering that most self protection is close the distance factor wouldn't be a player?

Have you read Kahrhauler's use of "self cleaning" (my term) bullets? Sounds like a good idea. Any thoughts without stepping on his toes. I'm looking for conversation only not critiques.
