Wouldn't a headshot at any distance be fatal regardless of ammunition?

It all depends on many factors, e.g., where you get shot in the head, the velocity and energy of the projectile, etc.

Quote:According to Aarabi, 20,000 people in the United States die each year from gunshot wounds to the head. The survival rate is about 5 percent, with only 3 percent achieving a good quality of life afterward. In 2000, Maryland recorded 235 penetrating brain injuries - 208 of them lethal.

Headshots are not always fatal even at point blank range. Remember the Afghani Girl who survived getting shot by the Taliban? Malala? She took a bullet through the skull - and spine, too, actually - at 11 years old and lived. This is why American soldiers "double tap" downed enemies whenever they are able to (two shots to the cranium). It ensures old Ackbar Spillyguts won't get up again someday to kill more of our boys.
