9mm vs .45

the 45 is always the best. That is why the US Army developed the 45 for stopping power. Just think your enemy is charging with a rifle with a bayonet and you shoot him with a 38, the rounds go eight through him and he guts you with his bayonet. The 45 will stop him in his tracks and knock him back. Very heavy and a slow slug v a very high speed round the will go right through your enemy

At handgun velocities, hydrostatic shock is not a factor. Therefore stopping power depends primarily on larger bullet cross section and heavier bullet weight. That means the .45 ACP trumps the .40 S&W trumps the 9mm Luger.

The .45 definitely packs more punch. The inertia value of the .45 is instrumental in knocking the thug back (and down).
