Yeah but, bullets dont have nearly that kind of kinetic energy though.
They don't knock people off their feet like they do in movies. The impact trauma from a bullet and the trauma from a massive dog tackling you are completely different.
A bullet's damage is based mostly of the wound channel it creates.

Thats like me saying A man got shot in the stomach and didnt go down, but I once pushed a man over and he fell down...therefore my hands are deadlier than than bullet. The two just dont corelate.

Stopping power is calculated by how much damage it will do, not how much energy it has. For example, a bullet from a powerful gun will blow a hole in your arm, stopping it working, and the dog's jaws will crush it, stopping it working to the same extent.

Its talking about pound foot of pressure being placed around a target area, like how a .45 cal bullet will do (figuatively) 550lbs of force in an area of 1/16 inches point blank, but the dog deals the same amount of force (550lbs) but spread more evenly. Much how the akin a US football lineman tackle to a shotgun blast.

No it isnt. Stopping power is a gray area phrase that people use to estimate a bullet's relative ability to cause damage to soft tissue. And its determined by liklihood to stop the threat. Hense the name. Which factors in potential to do damage, But not damage by itself. A gunshot wound and a dog bite no matter how powerful either may be are not the same type of injury and can't be compared fairly.
You can compare the stopping power of a bullet to another type of bullet or the jaw strength of one dog to another dog.
The whole point I'm making is that trying to make is that trying to compare the stopping power of a dog to a bullet is fucking retarded because the two arent the same thing.

Stopping power is a very general phrase, which I would interpret as exactly what it says: the ability to stop a threat.

-Getting hit with .45 bullet is very likely to stop someone.
-Getting mauled by a 200lb dog is also very likely to stop someone.

Thus, they have roughly equivalent 'stopping power.' Tbh I'd actually say the dog has greater 'stopping power' by this definition. You theoretically could keep going after a single .45 shot. After one of these suckers latches on though I cant really see you going anywhere.

what is stated is correct, they just used the incorrect terminology. Its based on the pressure per foot (ft/lbs). They used this terminology to determine "stopping power" or the force the object applied to its target. Its not about likelihood, its about measured science.
