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 147 gr XTP Custom fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Smith & Wesson M&P9C 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 9mm Luger (9x19) 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 prefer Hornady over other brands. I bought 2 boxes for my new Glock 17 Gen 4. Now I need to buy more.

In my Sig Sauer 938, or my Glock 19, this stuff rocks. Deep penetration and expansion what more could you ask for. ????????

This is the One !
Review by Ted
As mentioned earlier, heavy enough for better knock down power, but hopefully less walls penetrated. Nice tight patterns @ both 10 yds.., & 20 yds.. This is the One !

Excellent SD ammo
Review by Creek
My goal is to find the best self defense ammo out there that works for my own needs. I wanted a heavier round that wouldn't be as likely to penetrate several walls, yet would knock any bad guy down. I think I've found the golden ticket with these. Bought the 40SW/180g version for my G23 as well. Excellent SD ammo.
