    Found this on another forum and is a very good source for providing data regarding the testing of various calibers and loadings.

    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.

    I'll have to look them over again when I have time. I remember there was an utter fail in there and I said to myself "I thought gold dots were some of the best."

    Still, I know his Fed Prem HST tests were glowing.

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