The Gold Dots do seem to consistantly have the best expansion numbers.
Yeah, for all the "scientific" testing, they sure get results that don't have any real conclusion. I think a bullet has to penetrate. In this case, the 147's and 115's are almost going the same speed, so I might just as well use the 147's and get deeper penetration.
