    Terminal test Benchmark - Speer Gold Dot 357 Magnum 125 Grain Clear Gel test

    I've decided to stick with the clear gel until something even better comes along so I wanted to kick off the new year with a benchmark test of everyone's favorite fight stopper. Regardless of whose terminal test theories you subscribe to, there does appear to be a general agreement that a 125 grain bullet traveling at 1400+ feet per second gets things done. I'll follow this test up with my own proprietary clothing test next week. For now, here are the bare gel results.

    Very nice test, and confirms what I already knew, or at least suspected. The .357 125 gr Gold Dot is a terrific defensive load.

    I've put together my own clothing barrier test protocol. Along with the bare gel benchmark, the 357 was also the first one through the new barrier. As expected, it set the bar pretty high for those that will follow.
