    Hello. The test results I've seen reported in 10% ballistic gelatin average about 12" in penetration. Weight retention is usually high.


    This 230-gr. Hydrashok was fired from a 5" 1911 into "wetpack," supersaturated newsprint soaked for 24 hours and then drained 30 mins before shooting.

    The below-listed average velocities show the gun from which they were obtained and are based on 10 shots fired 10' from the chronograph screens:

    Colt Defender w/3" bbl:
    Average Velocity: 799 ft/sec

    SIG-Sauer P220 w/4 1/4"bbl:
    Average Velocity: 871 ft/sec

    Colt National Match w/5" bbl:
    Average Velocity: 883 ft/sec

    I have seen these bullets removed from javelina and deer and they do resemble the picture shown above.

    Hope this is of use.

    Best.
