We have several other tests left before we make anything more than observations. The Ammo. Much to my surprise none of the 9mm bullets penetrated both walls of the cinder block.
The FMJ is the least damaging type of projectile in common use. A wadcutter is a much more effective wounder than an FMJ, and a hollowpoint can be a significantly superior wounder than an FMJ assuming, of course, that it penetrates deeply enough. Even in a relatively weak caliber like.
Full metal jacket or hollow point? This frequent topic of debate is one of the few gun-related topics that actually has fact-based evidence to support both sides of the argument. I love hollow point bullets and carry them in my concealed weapon.
The 9v45 debate continues with a new round of non-scientific testing by Edwin Sarkissian in which he stacks a pair of Glocks against a table load of 24ga sheet metal. The 9milly test is grain FMJ fired through a Gen. And no, he has not learned to stop picking up hot lead with his bare hands yet. Cloners build rifles that closely resemble actual service weapons by carefully selecting components for an exact match for the most
This is mainly due to the fact that FMJ rounds are significantly cheaper than your average hollow point. This is due to an international treaty that was signed many years ago that forbids the use of expanding rounds. That same treaty also bans the dropping of grenades from hot air balloons, mind you, so some of the stuff might be outdated in the grand scheme of things.

When you talk about the best of anything, usually you have a specific purpose or criteria in mind for its usage. You pay attention and research its ability to satisfy that particular need or use. A bullet is just that — it is not the cartridge case.

A bullet passing through a threat and continuing with the potential to cause unintentional damage to a bystander or object is a situation commonly described as over-penetration. The occurrence could be a bad thing if you shoot someone who is attacking you while your wife is standing behind the attacker. On the other hand, a bullet that passes through one bad guy and strikes another could be a good thing if the two are lined up to beat you with a claw hammer.
These are fat, hard-hitting rounds known for their use in the legendary pistol. In this guide, we'll be pointing you in the direction of the very best. We will also be referencing ballistics testing, which provides a clear side-by-side comparison on how each of our recommendations stacks up against each other.
