We test fired five rounds of .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) Remington 165 gr Golden Saber into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Glock 27 pistol at a distance of 10 feet. A four-layer barrier of heavy fabric was placed in front of the gelatin to simulate clothing.
The complete data for this load from our test can be found on the chart below. The photo slider displays the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel. Pictured below is a high speed video that shows the bullet entering the gel at approximately 10,000 frames per second. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) loads.

This is one of the best rounds money can buy. I have put about 3000rds down my M&P pistols both the M&P 40 and my M&P shield 40 and never had a ftf or fte no feed problems. It is a accurate round and the expansion and weight retention of the hollowpoint make this the best for personal protection and home defense.
A good ammo
I have not yet shot the ammo I purchased. But, I purchased this ammo based on experience with 9mm of same manufacturer I've had since 1995.
I shot some of that ammo on my last range experience with no problems.
It arrived in a timely manner and undamaged.
An overlooked gem
I have fired this round in the 9mm caliber in the 147 grain and been satisfied with its performance specially since the 9mm rounds I fired recently I've had since 1994.
I purchased this .40 cal based on that experience, testing reviews. I purchased this for my M and P Shield .40 cal which is a wonderful piece to shoot. I also I have a M and P .40 cal full size. I've yet to shoot this ammo in either but will soon.
I like the Speer gold dot, but sometimes finding that in a 50 round box is hard: That is the duty ammo I carry.
As usual delivery quick and fast.
Great product and great price
Watched several utube evaluations of this ammo and I'm confident that it really performs well in ballistic gel. The price was terrific and delivery was much faster than what I expected, based on purchases on some other well-known sites. This will be my go-to site for any future ammo purchases.
I run this ammo through both my .40 Glocks. It goes bang every time. Never a single FTF. Terminal performance is well documented. LG's price beat anything else I was able to find. Shipping was fast & customer service is excellent.
Tests of these have proven that these rounds work as advertised. They provide quick massive expansion and stay intact very well despite not being bonded. In the 40 S&W and the 45 ACP they provide exceptional knockdown power and impressive expansion.
Quality product. Very good price.
I think this is one of the best personal protection rounds you can buy. Independent tests show minimal fragmentation and very consistent performance. Even after factoring in shipping charges Lucky Gunner was nearly $7 per box cheaper than the local store when compared on the day I placed my order.
