After firing five rounds of Hornady 175 gr Critical Duty 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 Hornady 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.

The ammo was clean burning and repeatedly fired flawlessly without any problem. I would recommend this product to any 40 S&W owners.

Everything I expected and more.
Review by Randy
LuckyGunner had what I wanted when I needed it. Quick shipping was a plus and the price was right. The Hornady 40 S&W Critical Duty performed as advertised and the quality is also great. Five star experience.

Over all, best round out there.
Review by jhw_usmc
This is the best ammo you can buy. Works flawlessly and causes major damage, as seen when shot through ballistic gel. Absolutely the only round I would use when carrying. Great buy. Great ammo.
