After firing five rounds of Winchester 230 gr Ranger T-Series from a Kahr CW45 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 .45 ACP 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.

This ammunition cycles well through my Kimber Aegis Custom, andmy FNX .45 without a hiccup. It is also very accurate. I use it for my carry ammo away from home. I’m very happy with the quality of the product, and will continue to keep it in my supply.
I have cycled over 1,500 rounds of Winchester ammo through my Sig RCS 1911 and not once did it not go bang! The penetration and expansion of this ammo is top notch and the only thing I would carry for personal protection for me and my family.
Stout recoil for “pocket guns”
While I have only seen it’s effectivness in online gel tests, I cannot speak on that. It’s likely in the top 5 as far as lethality goes as well as reliability. However for smaller frame guns like the XDs or in my case the Shield, I found the recoil to be quite stout, akin to a full house .357 mag in a short barrel revolver. With a larger gun this likely would not be an issue, just something to consider if your packing a “poly wonder”. Shots were accurate, but a considerable time was spent on follow up shots. Perhaps save this for your full frames.
It works, what else needs to be said about it. If your like me and you carry to protect your family WHY would you carry anything else?? I have function checked these in my 1911's and for me they run 100%. I have shot them into wet newspaper, barrels of water & jugs of water they always open. They may not group as well as some @ 25yds but not a game changer for me. Great Ammo for protecting the ones you love.
I have to say, I feel confident, and safe with this product. if there is more that comes in, I will purchase it for sure. I am very confident that anyone else purchasing this type of ammunition would never go unsatisfied. I'm actually pretty happy with the price tag as well.
