Unfortunately the rules of physics do not bend.
The best we can do is spread the energy over a larger area, and maybe over a greater time.
If you stab your self with a sharp pencil it punctures you, if you stab yourself with the eraser is bruises you.
The idea is to prevent penetration and spread the force over a wider area allowing the victim to avoid the soft tissue injury and survive the shock injury.
If a round has 1000 ft-lbs of energy at 100 years and is moving at 2700 feet per second.
