After firing five rounds of Magtech 85 gr Guardian Gold from a Glock 42 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 .380 Auto (ACP) 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.

Review by Sam
This ammunition ran through my PPK/S flawlessly and delivered the advertised velocity. The load is hot, with a stiff recoil, and best used for self defense or occasional testing.

Magtech Guardian Gold 380 (short review)
Review by dude
While the ammo has comparitively great value for defensive rounds and performed 100% for me, the bullets themselves are obviously not among the highest quality. Small deformities can be seen between each round. However, the ammo fired flawlessly in my bersa thunder 380.
