A Good Reference for JHP Expansion Testing.
Found this on another forum and is a very good source for providing data regarding the testing of various calibers and loadings.
ATK Law Enforcement: Wound Ballistics
I used these videos on YT to decide. But tester is looking for 9mm ammo for his C&C gun, which as a 3" barrel.
From these, I've determined that Speer Gold Dots are utter fail. They didn't expand at all.
Federal Premium HST and Hornady Critical Defense are the top two, with HST being #1.
in what caliber? in 9mm, the gold dots did fine in +P 115gr.

I'll look it up and apologize if I got the wrong brand, but I'm pretty sure it was Gold Dots.
