After firing five rounds of Hornady 230 gr XTP +P from a Kahr CW45 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 .45 ACP (Auto) 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 Hornady load compares to other .45 ACP (Auto) 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.

Solid round, but not the winner of my JHP trials
Review by HKanimal
I picked up a box of the XTPs to continue my JHP trials in the HK45. I would say that the round was definitely acceptable, but the accuracy was not as good as my two current favorites - #1 Federal HST LEs, #2 - Remington Golden Sabers.
I think this is a plenty good round, but for me, the two I mentioned above are more accurate and are slightly cheaper.

Full Duty Power.
Review by craig
Just bought another case as I have used this before, my personal favorite. This is not the down-loaded powder type that is only good for the range and it feeds well. This is the GOOD STUFF. (make sure your firearm is +P rated)
If there is a way to improve the service of LuckyGunner... I can't think of it.

Hope I never have to use the rounds. Purchased as primary self-defense ammo.
Bought 12 boxes, in testing a box I have convidence this ammo will provided the needed stopping power, providing my aim is true.
This is yet just another positive experience dealing with LuckyGunner.com
