For those not too familiar with the science of terminal ballistics you my find something of interest here.

Some of the methodology is interesting but it doesn't seem to have all the results. Looks more like the headers for a presentation.

Interesting that their starting point was whether rounds would penetrate a car windscreen. I would have been more concerned about the concrete wall at 200 - 500m.

That said, I would be confident of hitting the driver of an approaching car under 100m. I suspect that might have been the factor lacking in the events that prompted the trials.
