I just saw a youtube video today by IraqVeteran8888 from several years ago, wherein he tests 9mm for "lethality" 7 yards to 440 yards. They shoot the closer targets with a CZ pistol. For the further targets, he uses a Keltec Sub-2000. They run the test with 124 grain FMJ, and 124 grain Federal HST, using both 3/4" plywood backed by 2x4s, and ballistic gelatin targets.

Surprisingly, the FMJ still had enough velocity/energy to punch through both the plywood and the 2x4 at 440 yards, and the HST had enough velocity/energy to expand in the ballistic gel at 440 yards...just not quite as dramatically as it did at close range.

And this is why rule #4 is so important: Identify your target, and what is behind it!
