Ballistic gelatin testing is one way to get an idea of how a self-defense load might perform in a real world self-defense situation. So we fired five rounds of Speer 124 gr Gold Dot from an M&P9c from a distance of 10 feet into a block of synthetic ballistic gel with a barrier of four layers of fabric simulating heavy clothing. We then gathered information on the expansion and penetration characteristics of this load. That data is represented in the chart below.
How this load compares to other 9mm Luger (9x19) loads from our tests in regards to bullet expansion and penetration can be found in the diagrams at the bottom of the page.
We also took photos of each bullet that was recovered from the gelatin, seen in the photo slider below. The high speed video shows this round impacting the ballistic gelatin at 10,000 frames per second.

Great SD ammo
Review by Doseaffect
If I ever have to count on one bullet in a self defense situation, this is the one I would want to have in my 9mm. I have tried several other SD ammo and found it can count on Speer Gold dot.
