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 Federal 125 gr Premium JHP fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Glock 31 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 .357 Sig 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.

Can't put a price on self defense ammo
Review by Jeff
357sig is an expensive round. But I carry it daily and hope I'll never have to use it. I don't shoot this particular brand on the range often because it hits my wallet with every trigger pull. However, I don't regret spending a little extra for peace of mind and quality ammo that will possibly protect me and my family.

Good, but pricy
Review by Happygunner
I had no problems shooting this ammo, but it is rather pricy. I bought it at the height of Obama's tenure for $60/50 rounds at a brick-and-mortar store. It looks like it's come down some, but it's still expensive. I've shot another brand that I achieved better accuracy with for recreational target shooting, but this stuff still did pretty good. No complaints, other than price.

Quality product and quick delivery
Review by Sigman
I purchased a couple hundred rounds of this ammo a couple of weeks ago. It arrived at my door within two days of order placement. My SIG P226 fed these rounds flawlessly, not a single hiccup. Furthermore, this is the best price I have seen anywhere to date. I will continue to use Lucky Gunner for ammo purchases in the future
