the LBJ angle is most believable...had ample motive and enough power to pull it off.

The show 'JFK: The Smoking Gun talks about it very well I think. Basically Oswald gets two shots off and the third cartridge found at his nest is actually a blank often used to keep the chamber clean. Both shots hit, one in the throat and another is the 'magic bullet' which actually lines up perfectly when the car seats are aligned properly and Connelly's turned position is accounted for.
The third shot witnesses said came faster than the second and was likely the shot from Hickey.
The military round from Oswald's rifle is solid metal and rounded at the tip. It is meant to go through armor and people, not fragment. The AR 15 bullet is designed to fragment and blow huge holes in people.
Of course there are a million theories out there. For me this is one of the few that uses modern ballistics experts to study the bullets and the resulting damage to find discrepancies.
