After firing five rounds of Sig Sauer 165 gr V-Crown from a Glock 27 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 .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) 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 SIG SAUER load compares to other .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) 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.

Review by Chris Roberts
I bought 4 boxes of this ammo and haven't had one issue out of my Glock 27 Gen4. The 165gr Sig V-crown is very manageable in terms of recoil, it's pretty accurate, usually a great price (check your local stores once in a while), not too bright in low light, and expansion is decent (but not the best out there). I'm pretty happy with this ammo so far and keep all of my mags full with it.
