    Clear Gel Terminal test on the Speer Gold Dot 357 Magnum 158 Grain

    Confused by the 125 vs. 158 debate, I ended up testing them both on the same day in the same gel blocks. The bare gel test for the 158 grain Speer Gold Dot went up today. Stress test will be up later this weekend.

    I think this might find use as a decent hunting round, with that kind of penetration.

    That's what I was thinking too. Looks like this would make for a good hunting round but penetration is too deep for SD use, at least in my opinion.
