Default 10mm gelatin test: Reeds' 165 gr and 180 gr Golden Saber




Reed's 180 gr & 165 gr Golden Saber fired from 4.5" barrel EAA Witness through four layers of denim into calibrated 10% gelatin.

BB: 585.5 fps, 3.6"


180 gr results:
Impact velocity: ~1,211 fps
Penetration: 14.4"
Retained weight: 179.6 gr
Max expansion: 1.058"
Min expansion: 0.548"
Neck: 0.5"
TSC: 1.5" x 7"


165 gr results:
Impact velocity: 1,329 fps
Penetration: over 14.7"
Retained weight: 164.6 gr
Max expansion: 0.770"
Min expansion: 0.586"
Neck: 0.4"
TSC: 1" x 8"

I did not get a velocity reading from the 180 gr shot so the velocity figure is from Intercooler's 10mm master sheet found here.



165 gr



180 gr

Call me stupid, but how does a 165gr bullet have a retained weight of 179 gr.

sure you don't have those result headings flipped lol. retention and velocity would lead one to think so unless one had a good bit more powder behind it
