Ballistic Gel Testing
For data purposes, we have used a 32" penetration depth but omitted the expanded diameter or weight from our calculations. Since the fired bullets were lost, we were unable to measure them in the final two rounds of this ammunition's testing.

A damn good round. The expanded JHP looks VERY much like the older generation Speer Gold Dot. I wouldn't be surprised if ATK had sold the older dies/blue prints to CBC/S&B.
