Ballistic Gel Testing
As you hunt for the best self-defense 40 Smith & Wesson ammo, we thought you might enjoy seeing the results of some testing we recently conducted with calibrated Clear Ballistics gelatin.
We shot five of these Winchester Ammunition rounds through a four-layer cloth barrier using a S&W M&P40c. The results are detailed in the video you see above as well as the photographs. Through the charts, you should get a great idea how this Winchester Ammunition ammo stacked up relative to other 40 Smith & Wesson ammo products available to American shooters.
To get a better sense of our tests, be sure to check out all the protocols we followed when conducting our tests to determine the best self-defense ammo.
