    Gold Dot Short Bbl vs. Winchester 230gr JHP

    I have been meaning to post this for a while, but forgot. It is a test my buddy did with his 3" Kimber using the Gold Dot Short Bbl 230gn rd. vs. Winchester 230gr personal defense hollowpoints. He shot a water jug from I believe about 10yds. with each. Both seem to have retained the same weight, but look at the difference in expansion.

    The fact is that Gold Dots arent known for large expansion, particularly after heavy clothing. Try the same test with 230gr+P HST or Ranger T. They're in a whole different league.
