Today I tested eight defensive handgun loads in 10% ordnance gelatin. My little gelatin blocks molded in cardboard ½ gallon milk containers worked flawlessly again. I urge you to give these a try if you want to conduct some gelatin testing on your own. (These small blocks wont work for rifle cartridges.)
The following loads were tested:
|.45 ACP Glaser Silver Safety Slug|
|.32 H&R Magnum Federal 85 gr. JHP|
|.32 NAA Corbon 60 gr. JHP|
|9mm Federal 105 gr. EFMJ|
|9mm Speer 124 gr. Gold Dot HP|
|9mm Speer 124 gr. +P Gold Dot HP|
|9mm Federal 115 gr. JHP|
|.45 ACP 185 gr. Speer Gold Dot HP|
Anyone guess which load penetrated the deepest? Check out Terminal Tuesday in July and August for the results of this test session.
If you have been looking for a way to clean your rifle when in the field, while hunting or during a match you might consider the Fast Snap Rifle Cleaning System from Remington. It has everything you need to clean a rifle – even a bore light. I keep one in the case with my SISK CSR and another goes with me on every hunt.
