Ballistic Gel Testing
We tested this G2 Research 9mm Luger (9x19) ammo by firing five rounds with a S&W M&P Shield with a 3.1-inch barrel into calibrated Clear Ballistics gelatin. Of those five rounds, we discovered the ammo penetrated an average of 11.68-inches into the gelatin. Our test rounds ended the test with an average expanded diameter of 0.35-inches, retaining 34% of the projectile's original weight.
On this page, you'll see video of our tests including photographs that detail the ammunition before/after firing it through a four-layer barrier into gelatin. Also, you'll see how this G2 Research 9mm Luger (9x19) ammunition stacks up compared to other self-defense rounds in 9mm Luger (9x19).
