I think velocity makes the difference here. Would be interesting to see what kind of exiting holes the 22 would makes at 940 fps on those same kind of tin cans.

Yeah - diameter advantage is real.

The diameter advantage is why my .69 calibre round ball muzzleloading rifle kills moose, elk and deer faster and shows more visual effect of the impact, not to mention the impact sound, compared to what most guys pack as a modern rifle like a .303British, .300 Magnum, etc, etc. My buddy's .75 round ball rifle is even better. Both of these were popular for Indian game, like buffalo, elephants and tigers in the mid 1800's. The 11 bore, ie 75 cal. was a "stopping" rifle, while the smaller 14 bore (.69) was the favoured hunting rifle calibre. I've found both do an excellent job on our moose.
