After firing five rounds of Hornady 95 gr FTX from a Glock 42 w/ conversion bbl 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 Makarov (9x18mm) 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.

Great defense round
This is an excellent defensive round that feeds and ejects perfectly in both of my Makarov pistols. I have only shot two clips to compare them to the regular Silver Bear rounds and the accuracy, recoil are both the same the impact is quite different and I can see I will be getting more of these for my conceal carry Makarov. Thanks for the great service and products.
Best defensive 9x18 out there
My Bulgarian Mak can be picky when it comes to JHP rounds but this stuff feeds smooth as butter. Normally I had been hesitant to carry JHP rounds in it because they would typically jam on the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th shot but I have yet to have any FTF problems with these rounds. Along with heavier recoil spring (19lb) it really shoot them smoothly with very manageable recoil.
Great defensive round
There aren't too many defensive loads out there for the 9x18 Makarov, but Hornady has come up with an excellent one. Perfect feeding/firing through my Makarov. Recoil no more than average for the caliber, but hits with >200 lb ft of energy, which is solid performance for a 9x18 standard pressure loading. Has all the benefits of Critical Defense compared to standard JHP rounds. This is my everyday defensive load for my Makarov pistol.
