A projectile moving at around 200 fps with around the same amount of joules will cause allot more damage duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Probably enough joules there to bring down a small flying aircraft..some serious ball bearings.

I'm a bit rusty on the whole slingshot terminal ballistics thing you have going on.

Got a link to any verified tests?

Well tests coming soon but here is some logic. A 22 round withholding 130 joules of energy has the same amount of penetration power as a 30mm steel ball with the same amount of energy. But it would cause more damage than a 22 because it has more surface area. Causeing more 6x more damage then a 22 because a 22 bullet is 5mm.
