why do you have .40 having more stopping power than 10mm? if .50AE is a 10... than what is a .500S&W?

what bullet or barrel length; But my SWAG based on a reasonable defensive round is as follows; It assumes two rounds accurately placed in the chest cavity of an assailant not on drugs, and no more than 21 feet away. Objective: STOP the attack.[only for this group of calibers and based upon approximate resultant muzzle energy]

50AE-10
10mm- 9
357 Rem mag-8+
40S&W-7
45acp-7minus
9mm-5+
.380-3

Stopping power

miss- 0/10
any caliber you can hit with- better than 0/10
near-miss with 5 inch naval gun and bigger-priceless
