After firing five rounds of Federal 230 gr HST from a Kahr CW45 into synthetic ballistic gelatin from 10 feet away through four layers of fabric to simulate clothing, we then measured the expansion and penetration of the bullets for this .45 ACP (Auto) load, which you can see in the chart below.
The photos below provide a detailed view of the the expanded bullets that were recovered from the gelatin. The high speed video shows the first of our five shots as it entered the gel.
Finally, if you'd like to see how this Federal load compares to other .45 ACP (Auto) loads, check out the diagrams at the bottom of the page. Want to know more about our ballistic gelatin testing and self-defense ammo? Check out Lucky Gunner Labs for more information.

Wildly impressed with this round, 230 grain HST
Review by Adman. (Posted on 3/12/16)
I took this standard pressure round to the range today to specifically test its recoil and accuracy against the +P version. I was wildly impressed with both. The accuracy was consistent, even across both pressures. The recoil difference was minimal. I was using a Sig P220 with a 4.4" bbl and alternated mags. I will use the standard pressure in close quarters and the +P outside and feel very confident. Done and done. Great .45 ACP round.
