We wanted to know exactly what happens to a self-defense handgun bullet on impact, so following FBI protocols, we fired five rounds of Federal 155 gr HST from 10 feet, through four layers of cloth (to simulate clothing), into synthetic ballistic gelatin. The photos below show the bullets recovered from the gelatin after being fired from a Glock 27 pistol. There’s also a high-speed video that shows the bullet impacting the gelatin block.
All the data we gathered pertaining to expansion and penetration of this load can be found in the chart below, and the diagrams at the bottom of the page show how it compares to other 9mm Luger (9x19) self-defense loads from our tests.
In addition to the Federal 155 gr HST, we tested over 100 other self-defense loads, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for the full story.

Ammo arrived in few days package was perfect! Ammo shot nicely no jams or stovepipes ! I use this in my carry gun!! Performed well under fire! You guys are the best...Thank you!
Excellent response for an item that I have been unable to locate locally.
I will definitely purchase from Lucky Gunner again. I have been wanting to try the product out and have been unable to locate this item within my area. I ordered from Lucky Gunner, and I received quick and accurate response. I intend to use them for my ammunition source.
Quality and Service
I have been buying ammunition for over 40 years. Sometimes facing government interference with my rights to shoot, protect my own and even hunt. It was great to find not only good quality ammunition but a great website where to buy it. many times in the past few year i put my whole order together to at the checkout phase find out that my whole order was out of stock. Or when compare shopping many websites do not offer price by round price comparison. I found the ammunition good, clean firing and no jams in my XDM. I found the price comparable or lower than anyone else and knew that I would actually get my order because of their IN STOCK live inventory. When I had a question someone actually picked up the phone and could even answer me. I will be recommending this ammo and company often. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
