In order to find out how different self-defense handgun loads perform, we decided to do some ballistics gelatin testing of our own. The chart below is a compilation of expansion and penetration data for Speer 185 gr Gold Dot fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Kahr CW45 pistol.
The photo slider provides a close-up view of the bullets we recovered from the gelatin, and the video shows this load entering the gel in extreme slow motion.
The diagrams at the bottom of the page can give you an idea of how this load compares to other .45 ACP self-defense loads that we tested.
We did a lot more of this ballistic gelatin testing, including over 100 different loads in a variety of calibers, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for all the details.

Review by Legend57
Purchased 1 box @ a big box store after a friend recommended it based on your websites ammo lab results. Suits me great w/a bit less recoil fired out of my EDC Glock 30S. Clean product & accurate too. Now my go to personal protection round. Highly recommend for us more experienced 'ol warriors.

Review by Tanker
Shoots a 1.5 " group at 15 yards out of my 4.25" barrelled 1911 . 15 yards equals 45 ft. so it's a perfect match to me . Hardly any fouling so it shoots clean and tight .
