    Glock 26 ammo test

    Well heres my first post here hope you enjoy.

    I did some ammo testing today and thought I'd share. All testing was done with a Glock 26 at 7-10 yards. Through 2 layers of denim. First was some 115gr UMC's. It penetrated 3 jugs and creased the back of the third but did not exit. It measured .535" @ the widest point and averaged about .530"



    Next was a Federal Hydro-shock 124gr. It only penetrated 2 jugs but expanded considerably more. It measured .665 at the widest point of the Lead, and averaged about .660. I did not measure the copper jacket pedals thought they stuck out a good bit more and one broke off in the second jug.



    Next was a Federal HST 124 gr +P. It Penetrated 3 jugs and creased the back of the third but did not exit. It measured .705" at the widest and averaged about .690.



    Since the HST did so well I decided to try it again to make sure it wasnt a fluke. The second shot penetrated 3 jugs, creasing the back without exiting again. It measured .735 at the wides point and averaged .725"



    And here is a shot of all 4 slugs with a dime for reference.

    Excellent report.

    Thanks for posting. The 9mm guys will be interested, I'm sure.

    And welcome to the forum.

    Welcome

    Welcome to the forum SDELAM,

    Nice report - as a 9mm owner I appreciate your making the effort to let us know your results. The HST looks like an excellent choice.

    Nice report!

    Are +P's the only available round in the HST line? I am not a +P guy but have gotten a couple 9mm's lately and think I may run it in them.
