We test fired five rounds of .45 ACP (Auto) PMC 230 gr Starfire into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Kahr CW45 pistol at a distance of 10 feet. A four-layer barrier of heavy fabric was placed in front of the gelatin to simulate clothing.
The complete data for this load from our test can be found on the chart below. The photo slider displays the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel. Pictured below is a high speed video that shows the bullet entering the gel at approximately 10,000 frames per second. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other .45 ACP (Auto) loads.

Good Deal Overall
I had some issues with jams on my Glock 36 but with my 30S had no issues at all. I have not had this issue with any other ammo in my 36, Spent round ejected with out any issues but when the slide started to return it would jam due to the hollow point opening catching and holding the slide open as if the clip is empty. It done this twice in 12 shots and once in chambering it. Other then those three jams they were great and in my 30S there were no issues at all!
very fast service- great sales people- very pleased over all
The service was great. Product shipped same day as order. The product was a good value and they had it in stock unlike many of their competitors, big box stores included. As always the people there we wonderful to deal with and good employees make for a great place to do business with. Thanks again guy's for the good service.
I always test several different makes of ammo thru my guns looking for the best accuracy with the type of ammo I will be using (self defense, practice, target shooting).
In my Springfield XDS, for self defense, this stuff shoots the best, so I always stockpile a few boxes.
