After testing the Speer G2 Gold Dot the next logical step was to try the standard Gold Dot and see if there was any real difference in performance.



Here is a link to the G2 Gold Dot test if you haven’t seen it.

The two bullets in bare gel both had a penetration of 15 inches with a velocity of 988 and 969fps. Expansion was also .57 inches each.



In heavy clothing one bullet penetrated 17.5 inches, expanded to .55 and had a velocity of 983fps. The other one went to 18.5 inches, expanded to .54 inches with a velocity of 972fps.



When I get a chance I will try some out of my three inch Kahr and see if it fares better than the G2.

There are lots of good tests "out there" on the web of the HST.
That stuff is awesome! It is all I carry now; in any caliber.

So I finally had a chance to shoot this load through my Kahr MK9 with a three inch barrel. Two rounds fired in bare gel. The first round had a velocity of 893fps penetrated 16 inches and expanded to .57 inches. Round number two also penetrated to 16 inches with a velocity of 876fps and expanded to .56 inches.




All six rounds tested from left to right. First two, bare gel from a Glock 19. Second two, heavy clothing from a Glock 19. And the last two from the Kahr MK9 into bare gel.
