Ballistic Gel Testing
We tested this Remington Ammunition 45 ACP (Auto) ammo by firing five rounds with a Ruger SR45 with a 4.5-inch barrel into calibrated Clear Ballistics gelatin. Of those five rounds, we discovered the ammo penetrated an average of 13.92-inches into the gelatin. Our test rounds ended the test with an average expanded diameter of 0.708-inches, retaining 100% 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 Remington Ammunition 45 ACP (Auto) ammunition stacks up compared to other self-defense rounds in 45 ACP (Auto).

Great Round! Shoots clean and is very accurate. It feeds flawlessly through many different weapons including glocks, kimbers, hk's, and taurus. A GREAT DEAL at a great price. This 185 grain is great out of all my 3-4 inch barrels without any noticeable increase in recoil or flash.
