We test fired five rounds of .45 ACP (Auto) Speer 200 gr Gold Dot +P 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.

Consistent 1050+ from my 5" barrel; Expansion is excellent
I carry a full size striker fired .45 acp with a 4 lb trigger and no creep. I'm a smallish male 5' 7" and I cut my teeth shooting Colts for the Air Force pistol team back in the late 60's -early 70's. The .45 acp has gotten a bad rap in years past for lack of accuracy. Nothing could be further from the facts. The Marines we shot against could consistently punch the 1" X ring out on the 50 yard slow far course and 25 yard timed and rapid fire round. We AF guys couldn't beat them but the experience made me a .45 man from that time forward. Speer Gold Dot is top of the line for performance and reliability.
