How does Winchester 180 Grain compare to other .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) self-defense loads? We conducted some tests with Clear Ballistics synthetic gelatin to find out. Following the FBI’s test protocol, we fired five rounds into the gel with a barrier of heavy clothing. We used a Glock 27 because the short barrel is similar to the type of compact handguns that are most likely to be carried concealed. Images of the fired bullets suspended in the gelatin are in the graphic above.
We measured the penetration depth of each bullet and then recovered them from the gel to measure the expanded diameter. You can find all of that data in the chart at the bottom of this page. Photos of the recovered bullets are below on the left and a slow motion video of the first bullet fired into the gel is down on the right.
If you’d like to know more about our ballistic gelatin testing and see the results from over 150 other self-defense loads, check out the article on Lucky Gunner Labs.

PACKS A PUNCH!!!!!
I was suprized at the difference the "Bonded" bullet made. I use it for self-defense protection. It really packs a punch. I practice with 2 liter soda bottles & gal. milk jugs with frozen water & also with water soaked phone books. Mushrooms & groups well at 20'. These rounds are getting harder to come by. Thanks Lucky Gunner!!!!!!
