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 200 gr XTP fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Kahr CW45 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 .45 ACP (Auto) 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.
|45 ACP - 200 Grain XTP JHP - Hornady Custom - 20 Rounds|
|Bullet Depth (in.)||16.5||17.9||18.1||18.3||19.4|
|Expanded Diameter (in.)||0.45||0.54||0.56||0.56||0.58|
|Bullet Weight after shot (gr.)||199.4||200||200.2||200.3||200.5|
|Bullet Velocity (fps)||854||857||867||868||870|

I have used this ammo in other calibers also with the same results, Accurate,Deadly,and Dependable. Hornady ammo is the most dependable ammo I have ever used. The XTP bullet may have originally been a hunting rd, but you need the same accuracy in a self defense ammo. The 200 gr Hornady XTP is a top contender for a good ccw choice.

First hollowpoint put through my newer Ruger SR1911 CMD and it performed very well. Probably will use this as my primary HP self-defense carry ammo for this weapon from this point forward.

I am not sure who is best. Hornady great rounds or Lucky Gunner for their outstanding service and pricing. How about a tie. Texans know best.

I like it because it is not only excellent personal defense ammo but, a bit more knock-down power than the seemingly more popular 185gr. For me nothing beats Hornady quality and .45cal. "Hit the bad guys fast and hard" - Hornady defense ammo and 45cal. is second to none.
