Ballistic gelatin testing is one way to get an idea of how a self-defense load might perform in a real world self-defense situation. So we fired five rounds of Winchester 165 gr Ranger T-Series from a Glock 27 from a distance of 10 feet into a block of synthetic ballistic gel with a barrier of four layers of fabric simulating heavy clothing. We then gathered information on the expansion and penetration characteristics of this load. That data is represented in the chart below.
How this load compares to other .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) loads from our tests in regards to bullet expansion and penetration can be found in the diagrams at the bottom of the page.
We also took photos of each bullet that was recovered from the gelatin, seen in the photo slider below. The high speed video shows this round impacting the ballistic gelatin at 10,000 frames per second.

Good Choice For JHP
Review by CAS
Looking for a good self defense load at a reasonable price? This Winchester Ranger ammo was my choice based on price, performance, reputation, test results, and local availability. I chose the 165 grain load hoping for slightly lighter recoil and faster follow up shots. Shoots accurately and reliably through my Glock 22.
