In order to find out how different self-defense handgun loads perform, we decided to do some ballistics gelatin testing of our own. The chart below is a compilation of expansion and penetration data for Winchester 230 gr PDX-1 fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Kahr CW45 pistol.
The photo slider provides a close-up view of the bullets we recovered from the gelatin, and the video shows this load entering the gel in extreme slow motion.
The diagrams at the bottom of the page can give you an idea of how this load compares to other .45 ACP (Auto) self-defense loads that we tested.
We did a lot more of this ballistic gelatin testing, including over 100 different loads in a variety of calibers, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for all the details.

Confused about rounds shown.
You are showing two different rounds. The gallery at the top shows an eight pedal projectile. The images of the shot rounds show a six pedal projectile. Bullet performance would not be the same in the gel test.
*Note from Lucky Gunner: Thanks for bringing that to our attention HKGunner! We're looking into correcting that disparity now. Really appreciate the heads-up!
While some say they are just repackaged Ranger-Ts, I can say that they are hard hitting and obviously bonded. I conducted water barrell testing (absolute best case scenario expansion) and the round performed flawlessly and after quite a few rounds fired, no malfunctions through my Kimber Pro Carry II.
I highly recommend this ammo!
