    I agree. Sectional density and bullet construction trump bullet weight as far as penetration is concerned.

    Sectional density may trump bullet weight but in my option bullet construction helps a lot as well
    I would prefer to hit a wildebeest with a 225 grain accubond at 2,850fps with close on 4,000fp of energy than a high sectional density 175gn 7mm cup and core with 3,400 fpe
    The animal sure knows it's been hit when you smack it with a big 35 cal.
    Placement trumps everything tho .
