Alright, if high velocity puts out the kind of hydraulic shock that it does, than wouldn't a .338 bullet @ 3000 fps do more damage than a .416 @ 2400 fps?
Isn't the circumference of damage done by a 3000 fps .338 bullet greater than .416 of an inch?
I've heard people say that a .375 h&h does less meat damage on a deer than a .300 mag because it's slower. And I think to myself, "if a .300 does more damage on a deer because it's so fast, than wouldn't it do more damage on a bear for the same reason?" (assuming the right bullet is used, of course)
