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 Hornady 180 gr XTP Custom fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Glock 27 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 .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) 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.

Incredible SD ammo
Review by Creek
My goal is to find the best self defense ammo out there that works for my own particular needs. I wanted a heavier round that wouldn't be quite as likely to penetrate multiple walls and fly into my neighbors house, yet would knock any bad guy down when hit. I think I've found the golden ticket with these. Bought the heavier 9mm/147g version for my G19 for the same reason. Excellent SD ammo.
