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 Magtech 185 gr Guardian Gold +P 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 (Auto) 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.

Dang - Flash and Bang what a kick!
Review by AZSixGuns
This ammo is amazing! In my Kimber Ultra Ten, and Dan Wesson VBOB - this stuff comes out ripping with a large flash and huge bang! Fun as heck to shoot and super accurate. It seems to be very similar to my Hot Underwood 185gr +P at 1300 fps. For defense, I use this as my first bullet in my magazine, the barrel is lock and loaded with a Wilson 200 gr XTP short barrel, then after the Gaurdian Gold, I have Underwood 120 gr Xtreme Defenders.
See YouTube for the Gaurdian Gold 185 gr +P in ballistic gel - super, super impressive!

bought 250 rounds of .45 plus-p and 3 out of 10 fail to load. Quality control is terrible!
