In order to find out how different self-defense handgun loads perform, we decided to do some ballistics gelatin testing of our own. The chart below is a compilation of expansion and penetration data for Winchester 230 gr Ranger T-Series +P fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Kahr CW45 pistol.
The photo slider provides a close-up view of the bullets we recovered from the gelatin, and the video shows this load entering the gel in extreme slow motion.
The diagrams at the bottom of the page can give you an idea of how this load compares to other .45 ACP (Auto) self-defense loads that we tested.
We did a lot more of this ballistic gelatin testing, including over 100 different loads in a variety of calibers, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for all the details.

|Expanded Weight (gr.)||228||229||229||230||230|

One of, if not the best .45ACP rounds currently available
Review by BallisticImpressions. (Posted on 11/11/16)
If you can get your hands on these, they are in my opinion, one of the top performers from all the ballistic tests I have seen, read about and been a part of. Of course, I am only basing this "review" on a handful of ballistic gel tests done over the past 5-ish years by some very reputable folks in the 2A community. Anytime you can get over 12" expansion, while still expanding to approximately 1" in average diameter, you are going to inflict some serious damage to the intended target. When the sharp talons stay intact, these projectiles are even more wicked, as they're essentially propellers of carnage on any soft tissue they come in contact with. The problem is, these are not exactly the easiest rounds to get your hands on nowadays. When that is the case, I'm a very big fan of the 230gr Federal HST in both standard and +P pressure. Like the HST's in all other calibers, it is perhaps one of the most consistent expanding and penetrating rounds on the market. And luckily for us, they can be bought all over, at a very fair price.
