Ballistic Gel Testing
As you hunt for the best self-defense 22 Magnum (WMR) ammo, we thought you might enjoy seeing the results of some testing we recently conducted with calibrated Clear Ballistics gelatin.
We shot five of these CCI Ammunition rounds through a four-layer cloth barrier using a Ruger LCR. The results are detailed in the video you see above as well as the photographs. Through the charts, you should get a great idea how this CCI Ammunition ammo stacked up relative to other 22 Magnum (WMR) ammo products available to American shooters.
To get a better sense of our tests, be sure to check out all the protocols we followed when conducting our tests to determine the best self-defense ammo.
