We test fired five rounds of 9mm Luger (9x19) Winchester 147 gr Train & Defend 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.

The high performance sleeper in defensive ammo
Review by Josh
I chose this round due to it being designed for short barrel 9mm. Older ammo designs shoot fire and cause excess muzzle flip which is not efficient. This stuff runs smooth, allows for fast follow up shots, and tests well on YouTube :) The ballistically matched Train ammo is affordable and has the same bullet profile so you can train cheap and know your weapon will function with the good stuff. When I bought it, this was around half of the more known name brand stuff that is over powered for short barrels. Can’t recommend this more for micro compacts.

Shoots more accurately through my Glock 43 that the critical defense does for some reason

Runs super smooth
Review by Lukas
After the slow mo here and watching “shootingthebull410”, I’m super impressed with this round. I shot the train line yesterday at the range, and it ran super smooth in my g43. I say, buy it just because you can practice with the train line

Excellent Sub Gun ammunition
Review by AF3rdID
I run this through a Scorpion Evo 3 S1 in the carbine format, and I must say this ammunition beats my expectations. I normally run HST in every firearm I have, but this ammunition feeds reliably every time (HST I will run into a few jams due to the wide hollow point) and expands each and every time. Great stuff for home defense and street defense.
