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 Hornady 220 gr Critical Duty +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.

I love Hornady ammo, i use in my hunting rifles and i have never had a problem with any Hornady bullet, i trust it enough to use it for my CCW. dependable, every time. this 220gr + P is a full house, power house of a load. I love it.
