As part of our ongoing self-defense ammo testing project, we used Clear Ballistics synthetic gelatin to evaluate the performance of Federal 155 Grain. Five rounds were fired from a Glock 27 into the gel with a four-layer cloth barrier to simulate an attacker wearing heavy clothing.
The top image in the photo above shows the first round fired into the gel and the bottom photo displays all five rounds. Below on the left, you can see what the bullets look like after they were recovered from the gel. To the right of that, you’ll find a high-speed video of the first round fired into the gel. At the bottom of the page, we’ve got a chart with all the data from our Federal 155 Grain test along with a couple of charts that show how this load compared to other .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) loads.
For test results from more than 150 other self-defense loads, check out the full article on Lucky Gunner Labs.

The best defensive ammo
Review by VF77
In my experience, HST is the best defensive ammo on the market. Shot a couple hundred rounds of this at the range the other day with no failures (as expected). My experience with Lucky Gunner was perfect. Great customer service, delivered quickly and as expected. I of course wish ammo was a little cheaper, but that's the reality these days, and this was a good value purchase and met or exceeded my expectations.
