Scottmac there are some videos showing the glaser balling up like round ball and zipping on threw. Now I know this is a 40 cal but find and watch how they don't blow up.-


Box o' thruth also did some test on just sheet rock with the 9mm and it wents thru 6 sheets of sheet rock.

Heres a a page that some can review and research some more.- http://ammo.ar15.com/project/Exotic_Ammo_FAQ/index.htm

Cool video, thanks for putting that up.

I believe the problem (if you choose to view it as such) with their testing methodology is that they put the gel within inches of the wall. The dispersal of the lead shot happens at the exit, or after a ricochet (capsule compresses on entry, "explodes" apart on exit. But, like a shotgun, it takes some time for the shot to disperse; more than a couple inches I'd presume.

I think it would be really cool to see tests like those with an ultra high-speed camera, with the gel placed at a couple inches, out to a yard or so, in 4-6" increments.

IMO, it would take something on the order of planetary alignment to have a defense shot gone wild, or an accidental discharge, whack someone who happens to be standing within inches of a wall at the point of exit.

By the way, the "ball" they remove is the component making up the snoot of the bullet for more reliable feeding.

All-in-all, I think I'd rather still use Glasers than a good defense hollow-point for in the home (I'm in a townhouse, one neighbor, multiple layers of 3/4 sheet rock and dense insulation - firewall). Hornady makes a point to exhibit the FBI penetration testing where the slug is still intact and lethal (as defined by the FBI) after perforating drywall, glass, wood, etc.

For a walking around mag or speed-loader load, I use a couple Glasers on the top of the stack (penetration not needed for an "immediate threat") and, depending on the firearm, followed by Hornady, Silvertips, HydraShock, or COR-BON.

At more than $2 per round I just can't support Glasers. I still think that HP's would do the trick.

I think $2 bucks a round is cheap when you look at being charged criminaly or civilly. There is also a company called magsafe and that's what I have loaded in my pistol at home and its also a hollow point.
