Ballistic Gel Testing

In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 22 Magnum (WMR) 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 Winchester Ammunition 22 Magnum (WMR) ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a Ruger LCR with a 1.87-inch barrel.
