great handgun ammo test


AmmoToGo.com published the results of an excellent, thorough and hugely informative defensive handgun ammunition test. I have never seen one better; rarely one even close.

Quite noteworthy is that a bullet design may be excellent in one caliber but perform poorly in another.

Velocity is an interesting factor, but penetration and expanded diameter are more important. Anybody with a chronograph can give you the former. It is normally listed on the box and in promotional literature. Only shooting into ballistic gel provides the latter.

The best test fires bullets through simulated winter clothes into ballistic gel. AmmoToGo.co did exactly that with this test.

In addition to their great knowledge base, they include good prices on ammunition you can order right there.
