Ah, how cute, a little garden. Looks like a cabbage patch of hate and discontent. I like it!

Howdy Danzig,

How about a little more info on your "test media"..

I myself take the WalMart jugs of drinking water, pour out just a little of the water and stuff them full of shredded newpaper that I tear into 1"x1" pieces, then I top the jugs off with water and tape the lid back on the jug.

This works pretty good for me. I usually tyri to get the jugs to weigh within 2 ounces of each other.

Thanks for the pix and test info. I love doing these test myself. I usually have a half dozen jugs sitting around my "gun room" in case I buy a new type of ammo that I would like to test.

Paul

Nice test. These look so similar you might think they are the same ammo unless you knew better. Good to know that most quality ammo has similar performance.

Please confirm which is xm9ha. Is it the row with one or the row with 4 expanded bullets? And post any chrono data you might have on the XM9HA

Interesting test. I like the expansion of those HSTs, however, I love the ballistic numbers of Gold Dot.

no,no,no,


it is not possible the unequaled 147gr. could not be matched in penetration by the worthless 155gr. .40 Short&Weak. dont you know anything about sectional density?
