We test fired five rounds of 9mm Luger (9x19) Hornady 147 gr XTP Custom into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Smith & Wesson M&P9C 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 9mm Luger (9x19) loads.

Review by Gummer
Bought 250 rounds and put 50 through my Glock 26. Excellent grouping. The rest awaiting self defense use.
