This week's gel tests: 9mm Hi-Shok, 10mm HST, Agula .22lr Interceptor
 
A user on another forum was gracious enough to send me some 180 gr Federal HST bullets, which I loaded over 11.2 gr of AA#7.

10mm HST hand load:




9mm Federal 115 gr HST:




Aguila .22lr 40 gr Interceptor:




I also tested the 10mm PPU 180 gr JHP bullets over a hand load as well as 155 gr TAC-XP. I wasn't able to get good pics of the wound channels so I decided not to post the video but here are the numbers and a pic of both:


I pulled the PPU 180 gr and loaded them right back into their own primed cases over 11.2 gr of AA#7, which generated 1,194 fps. It expanded to 0.668", max, and 0.617" min. Retained weight was 172.5 gr. Unfortunately, it curved down a bit and rode along the table, coming to rest at about 18 3/4". I don't believe this to be the real penetration depth, though.

I also shot a 155 gr TAC-XP loaded over 8.2 gr of 800-X. That generated 1,192 fps and penetrated 14.2". Retained weight was 154.8 gr. Max expansion was 0.759" and min was 0.481". I couldn't get any good pictures of the wound track so I decided not to post a video but I consider the numbers to be accurate.

You're very welcome. Here's another one:





What other .22lr would you like to see tested?

I was going to ask for the cci minimags but you got it already thanks again!

You're welcome. I'd like to do the Aguila SSS 60 gr if I can find any.
