Ballistic gelatin testing is one of the best methods we have available today for predicting the real-world performance of self-defense ammunition. We’ve used Clear Ballistics synthetic gelatin to test over 150 handgun loads, including Remington 165 Grain. We fired 5 rounds into the gel with a four-layer cloth barrier to determine whether heavy clothing would affect the penetration and expansion characteristics of the bullet. All rounds were fired from a Glock 27 to reflect the type of short barreled compact pistols that are most commonly carried by legally armed citizens.
Above, you can find photos of the actual bullets suspended in the test medium. Images of the recovered bullets are below on the left and high-speed footage of the first bullet fired into the gel is below on the right. All of the data we collected from our test of Remington 165 Grain is in the chart below that along with diagrams that might give you an idea of how this load compares to other .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) products.
If you want to see the rest of our ballistic gel test results, all of that data is available in our handy interactive charts at Lucky Gunner Labs.

On the expensive side, but well worth it.
Review by Funguydave WI
I feel one should practice what they will shoot. This round lives up to the reputation. Deadly as hell. Shoots clean, no misfires, and no misfires. There's a reason it's approved for the FBI and law enforcement. I am happy to have bought 500 rounds. Down to 400 now, but when I'm done shooting for practice, field clean my S&W M&P .40, I load 15 of these bad boys in my clip, and know my family is safe. Great bullet for that purpose. Will definitely buy another 500 in the future.
