*Many of you have already seen these from my posting at GlockTalk and www.okshooters.com

just thought i'd share them here.
I will be doing more tests in the future and i do have some older ones to post if there is any interest.
Thanks.

WOW thank you for that. I noticed was not a 8 layer picture shown for the gold dots? But from what i can tell the gold dots seem to expand and hold their weight the best out of the bunch. I really like that because i carry them in all my handguns.

You really put some serious effort into that.
Really great seeing the photographs.

Nice to see that my Gold Dot is still hanging in there with the others.:yup:

Excellent pictures and report! It was great to see so many self-defense loads compared side by side - I am a very visual person - so the pics are extremely helpful. I've been using the GD 115's - so I like 'em!

Thank you!:congrats: :congrats: :congrats: :congrats: :congrats:

Yes, very informative. I was not sold on Gold Dots for some reason. But now I like them and the Rangers the best.

Good info :smilez:

I didn't see this thread and just posted this pic on your other thread on 40's.

I do still stick to GD's myself - and these tests were out of the short R9 barrel, std pressure ammo too.

Yep, thanks J.P. I saw your post on GT and printed it out for "further" consideration.

I currently carry GD 124s and was a little disappointed that in the four denim test the bullet(s) couldn't be recovered. The 20" penetration suggests that they either disintegrated or they "plugged", over-penetrated and "left the scene". That's a little troubling.

I gotta agree with you - the 147 gn HST is pretty impressive and consistent in all the tests.
