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 Corbon 115 gr DPX 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.

Review by Doug
4 for quality, just because I wish the casings were nickel plated, but experienced no feed issues
5 for performance, incredible and consistent expansion
5 for value, they are costly, but you are trusting your life with these rounds and they do not disappoint
I have tested these in 9mm and 45acp, both performed flawlessly out of short barrels. I have tried others, but always end up with these all copper beauties.

Good for Concealed Carry
Review by Asa
I bought these to use in my Glock 43. The DPX has an excellent reputation of expanding into sharp petals, especially with heavy clothing (the most likely barrier for a civilian). These will penetrate at least 12 inches in ballistics geletin, so they meet the FBI minimum standard for an effective round, but they will penetrate on the lower end of the spectrum, which is what I am looking for in my personal situation. If I wanted more penetration I would use Gold Dots.
Another minor benefit is the solid copper bullet. If you have to unload your gun often these bullets will leave no lead on your fingers. I don't care about the environment, as I know my range will dispose of my bullets appropriately. But, it is pleasant to be able to handle the ammo without worrying about lead poisoning.
They have a 95 grain version of the DPX for the smaller 9mm handguns, but in all the tests I have seen these will open up just fine out of a smaller barrel. Recoil was not an issue for me and I like using the +P version.
These are (understandably) a bit on the expensive side, especially when you can find Gold Dots for about half the price. If you want extra assurance that the hollow-point will expand (into sharp copper petals), and a little less penetration but still within FBI standards, then this is a good round for you.
