I have tested this ammo on ballistic gelatin. Expanded to a average of .91 with serious fragmentation a loss of 30 to 40 % of weight with a average penetration of min of 9 inches to 11 inches. It hits like a 357 mag just like the hammer of Thor.

In reply to the previous reviewer, keep in mind that FBI, law enforcement in general have different requirements. As a private citizen interested in self defense, I am not too concerned about this round's ability to penetrate auto glass or bodies. I do worry about over penetration. <br />
Then consider most shooting situations occur w/in 10' many inside 5'. Also, I only carry this in my Glock 27- very short barrel= velocity loss. It's been a while since I did this and I know it's not very scientific, but I fired these into a press of wet newspaper and got very little fragmentation but did get pretty reliable and impressive expansion. I know a new generation of bullets have been developed. But I have been confident of these for many years. I am satisfied to continue with them.<br />
As a footnote- I carry the 150gr or 165gr in my G23.

Will often show serious fragmentation, thus reducing penetration. Doesn't pass F.B.I standards. With that said, I still wouldn't want to be hit by one.
