Ballistic Gel Testing
Using a Glock 29 pistol, we tested the Buffalo Bore 180 grain 10mm ammo to see how it compared with other loads in 10mm. We fired the rounds through a 4-layer barrier into synthetic ballistic gel. As you can see in the results below, the Buffalo Bore penetrated just a hair more than the FBI's recommended 14-18" but these rounds delivered an impressive 7/10 of an inch worth fo expanded diameter.
