For the past few decades, gelatin testing has been one of the primary tools used by ballistics experts to attempt to predict the real world performance of self-defense ammunition. Following the protocol first established by the FBI, we fired five rounds of Speer 90 Grain into Clear Ballistics synthetic gelatin. Each round was fired from a Glock 42 pistol from 10 feet away with a four-layer barrier of heavy fabric placed in front of the gelatin to simulate an attacker wearing thick clothing.
The data we gathered for penetration depth, expanded diameter, and bullet velocity is all in the chart below. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other .380 Auto (ACP) loads. Photos of the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel are in the slide show below on the left. On the right is a slow motion video that shows the first of the five bullets entering the gelatin block at approximately 1/300th the speed of real time.
Find out more about ballistic gel testing along the results of our gel tests from more than 150 other self-defense loads on Lucky Gunner Labs.
