Ballistic Gel Testing
Using a Glock 29 pistol, we fired 5 rounds of this Hornady 180 grain XTP ammo into synthetic gel. We wanted to see how the bullets responded when forced to travel through a 4-layer fabric barrier and into the gelatin. You'll see the results below as well as a comparison to the other 10mm loads we tested as part of this project.
