Ballistic Gel Testing
We tested 5-rounds of Speer Gold Dot 10mm ammo using ballistic gelatin, a 4-layer barrier and a Glock 29 pistol. Our goal was to see how this ammo from Speer compared to some of your other options out there. We found the Gold Dot ammo penetrated nearly 20" into the gel and expanded about .66". You can see how that compares to other 10mm ammo choices in the charts below.
