Ballistic Gel Testing
We used a Glock 29 with a 3.78" barrel to test this Hornady Critical Duty 10mm ammo. Firing 5 rounds through a 4-layer barrier and into synthetic gelatin, you can see this Hornady penetrated about 23.5" and provided an expanded bullet diameter of about half-an-inch. How does that stack up to others? Check out the results below.
