Yep there's an over-penetration rule in High Tech for Torsos (basically injury is maxed at HP, but still counts at full value for Bleeding etc).

It stops high energy rifle bullets taking people to -1xHP or worse in one shot instantly. Bullet wounds even from high energy rounds don't really work that way unless they hit some pretty specific things.

I think my issue is such rounds just won't do that much Cr damage.

I'm going to try Anthony's half and half suggestion with my allowing blunt trauma to counts as Cr for knock down tests, and see how it goes
