Ballistic Gel Testing
In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 10mm Auto self-defense ammo would perform if called upon in a self-defense scenario, we tested dozens of the best selling hollow points on the market.
We fired five rounds of this PMC Ammunition 10mm Auto ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a Glock 29 with a 3.78-inch barrel. In the photos, graphics and video on this page, you can see specifically how the PMC Ammunition ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 10mm Auto ammo we have tested so far.
