After firing five rounds of Barnes 115 gr TAC-XPD +P from a Smith & Wesson M&P9C into synthetic ballistic gelatin from 10 feet away through four layers of fabric to simulate clothing, we then measured the expansion and penetration of the bullets for this 9mm Luger (9x19) load, which you can see in the chart below.
The photos below provide a detailed view of the the expanded bullets that were recovered from the gelatin. The high speed video shows the first of our five shots as it entered the gel.
Finally, if you'd like to see how this Barnes load compares to other 9mm Luger (9x19) loads, check out the diagrams at the bottom of the page. Want to know more about our ballistic gelatin testing and self-defense ammo? Check out Lucky Gunner Labs for more information.

Good enough I bought 300 rounds of it!
Good ammo. If you want the Barnes bullet why not go to the people who actually make them? I've tried the others, the quality control was a bit sketchy. It feels soft to shoot out of my 43X. Chrono graphed these and they are right on the money for a 4" barrel.
This is some of the best ammo I've shot, and I've shot a lot of different ammo. I switched from Gold Dots to this as my home defense / carry ammo.
Pros - Worked in my gun (Walther PPQ M1 and a Q5 conversion kit) without issue. Switching between a mag of this and a mag of 115gr Gold Dots, I honestly couldn't tell the difference in recoil. Shots went where I aimed at 15 and 25 yards benchrested. Couldn't ask for more.
Cons - It's a premium price. It's worth it, but it's still a premium price. Also, it sells out fast.
Super accurate !
The Barnes SCHP runs great in my Arex Zero1 and Walther CCP ! Have not tried with the Sig P365 or Sig P290. i try to match each gun to what works best in it individually. The Arex having light and laser on it is the house gun, so this round being very accurate , also will not over-penetrate unlike some loads that are hotter.
BERETTA M9A3 and BARNES the Way To GO !!!
I use this Barnes Ammo in My "NEW" BERETTA M9A3 and SIG SAUER P365 Handguns and they work just GREAT.
In the SIG P365 they work so very good with a Low Recoil for a 10-12 round Small Handgun. In the BERETTA M9A3 Recoil is so Crazy Low.
Out of both of these different Guns, the SIG P365 has a 3.1" Barrel while the BERETTA M9A3 has a 5.2" Barrel the accuracy out of both is just Super. They feed this stuff fast with "NO" PROBLEMS just flawless runs.
I'd put this stuff in any Handgun for Personal Protection. I've tried a lot of the "NEW" Super 9MM Ammo and it's this, Federal HST, or Golden Sabre Black Belt.
But, use BARNES because of the all COPPER BULLET DESIGN !!!
Excellent all-copper self defense round!
My standard carry ammunition for my 9's is 147grn Federal HST. I was on the market for an all-copper SD round and this was the one a lot of reviews led me to. Although on the pricier side, this ammunition makes up for it in quality and performance. For a +P ammunition pushing over 1125 FPS the recoil is VERY soft, for lack of a better word. If you do your part the gun will track a lot faster with this ammo resulting in faster follow up shots. This is an outstanding preforming round and I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking for an all copper SD round.
I shot a few of these to see hownthe recoil was compared to standard 115 grn fmjs. It wasn't bad, but i definitely noticed the recoil was a hair stouter. Its good ammo and I feel confident carrying it in my everyday carry pistol.
