VIDEO: Federal .40 S&W 180gr HST Fails, but Speer 357 SIG 125 gr GoldDot Successful!
In a penetration test using the thick tank of an old air compressor as the target, the tank is shot by these rounds:
30-06 FMJ -- Penetrates fine
40 S&W 180 gr Federal HST, fails to penetrate!!
357 Sig 125 gr Speer GoldDot Successful!! It blow a big hole in the side of the tank!
Clearly, this shows the 180 gr .40 S&W Federal HST to be ineffective in defending against attacks from large air compressors.
Just look at the video yourself, to see the stark difference in results:
Just look at the size of that hole made by the 357 Sig!!
It this perhaps a good reason to switch from the 40 S&W and instead shoot with the 357 SIG??
