    my first attempt at bullet testing, i am shooting the 230 grain non +p Federal HST .45 acp hollow point through my officers STI Spartan III 1911 with a 3.24 inch barrel..I recovered Three rounds they all expanded over 3/4ths of an inch and retained full 230 grain bullet weight.

    in any caliber, that HST is some scary stuff.. will definitely mess up your day if hit with even just one of those..beautiful, and further demonstrates its reliable, and consistent expansion.
