Buying hollow-point ammo was a crap-shoot until I seen this data. It was eye-opening how sometimes low velocity can actually penetrate deeper than higher velocity. I would like to see what the Gr. From the results, it appears to me that golden sabers seem to have a selection that both penetrates to the right depth, and expands most consistently.

In reality, both the mean and median values are important for getting an overall picture of performance, particularly for the loads that were less consistent from shot to shot. Sounds like a great assignment: We used the same type of fabric specified in the FBI heavy clothing test, which calls for the following:. Scientific method is a must for any test of this magnitude.
Join the Gear Report Nation! Martin Fackler and his colleagues since the 80s, and find that your work and explanations of wound ballistics are simply some of the best I have found. Scientific method is a must for any test of this magnitude. Why are they so tight?
I like the load and the local PD use it and have tested it pretty thoroughly. I wish that they had tested ranger T, but being that it is similar to PDX, and PDX seem to do pretty well too, I suppose that will have to be good enough. Barrel length makes a difference too. Nothing I say is to be taken seriously, or internally. In the FBI's estimates, this test demonstrates a bullet's capacity to penetrate through the thickest part of an unarmored car door and cause harm to the passenger. It can be a t-shirt or an old sheet.
