    When I do carry a G30 it is stoked with Gold Dot 230's,I will alway's be partial to a bonded round as to a standard JHP.everything else I have is loaded with Ranger T's,variety is the spice of life,right.

    Speer GDHP Short Barrel

    My Glock 30 shoots Speer 230 gr Gold Dot Hollow Point Short Barrel (Speer #23975). After more than a hundred rounds, no FTF or FTE. Consistent groups.

    I'd be really curious to see how the fed hst ammo performs in the same test. And I would have thought the same since they flare when fired into a bucket of water. Even when given the different density of each media I would have thought they'd open at least a little?

    Yeah, thats what I had thought, also, I watched a few tests on youtube, of the PDX1 and the first test it failed to open, so I traded out all my PDX1's and put in all GoldDots, the testing on the HST's were great, they opened up very nicely... I have a box of them on order but right now they are on backorder, the HST's are getting hard to find... my next time out Im gonna soak the sand with water and see how they work that way, I hope with better results...

    Well I went out and tested the PDX1,GoldDots, and Rangers, into the wet sand they sure didn't make it far into it LOL.. this time they all opened up, the Ranger seperated from the jacket and the PDX1 and gold dots did not but were more in the shape of a ball... think next time I take some old carry ammo out to shoot I will cut the sand in half and add some wet newspapers in there... LOL wish I had some Balistic gel ...

    good info!
    Thanks for getting back to us on your latest test. I would love to see a carry ammo test with the ballistic gelatin using the glock model 30. I've seen some tests with the model 21 but that gun isn't practical for me to carry so the tests seem irrelevant to me.... Thanks for all the responses, keep em coming!
