"Stopping Power" is such a confusing term. The technical term used by the International Wound Ballistics Association is "wounding capacity". This separates the concept of stopping power into two areas, the capability of the bullet to destroy homgeneous tissue, and the mechanisms of inducing incapacitation, unconciousness, or death.

Because a bullet has the same wounding capacity regardless of where it hits (but the effectiveness of the shot depends on bullet placement) the "stopping power" of a bullet really depends on so much more than the bullet-- the point of impact, terminal velocity of the bullet; the clothing, orientation, and physical condition of the target, etc.
