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.

I bought these for home defense so I have not shot them yet, but I have always used Winchester supreme ammo for home defense and it has always worked well. Thanks Lucky Gunner for the great service again.

These rounds are premium and functioned flawlessly in my Springfield Stainless Mil-Spec 1911. While the price prohibits them from regular range use, I carry these rounds in my weapon at all times.

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!
