Ballistic Gel Testing

 

In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 9mm Luger (9x19) 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 Federal Ammunition 9mm Luger (9x19) ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a S&W M&P Shield with a 3.1-inch barrel. In the photos, graphics and video on this page, you can see specifically how the Federal Ammunition ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 9mm Luger (9x19) ammo we have tested so far.

    After 39 years in law enforcement, I have had tested many brands/bullets/weights/etc of ammo. Testing was not in aa lab, and some would say not scientific. I say I compared many rounds and HST always performed the best. Carried it on the job, and carry it now as LEOSA. HST and Gold Dot are the best. (HST first). Look at YouTube for many, many tests. You’ll see!

    Cant recommend it. Loaded a mag and chambered it in my CZ 75BD, slide was stuck when i wanted to do a chamber check, had to remove the slide with the round in the chamber. thats not good. To clarify, i have fired 1000 rounds of cheap FMJ ammo with one malfunction and 100 rounds of entry level JHP magtech ammo with no malfunctions, but this is really not great, for some reason this will not work in some chambers, maybe a Glock will do, but here it didn't work, which is sad considering how expensive it is. Also a round jammed the magazine, never had this issue with FMJ ammo. To clarify this was my experience in a high quality 9mm firearm, maybe it was a bad lot and you might have a different experience, but depending on what gun you have you might want to switch to a different HP round with a smaller hole in the tip

    Love this ammo. Ballistics of this ammo (1150 FPS/364 lbs) is the same as American Eagle 9mm 124 grain FMJ. Great to know the results of my practice on the range will be the same with my carry ammo.
