Hi Everyone..This has been posted on a few more forums but i thought i would share it with you guys.Myself and my friend did some balistic testing..Here are the results..


Had some extra time on my hands yesterday so i took a few hrs at the range to do some of my own Balistic comparison testing using 3 sets of wet soapy phone books submerged for 1hr measuring a total of 17inches per stack..And below i have posted some pics of the depth results and expansions...My velocities might not be accurate since my guns are not full length in size so you might wanna average a few hundred fps less than what is listed below..All tests were shot from a distance of 17ft...I will list from best to worst..From my tests the best expansion was the 50GI SCHP which measured 1.05" Shot from Glock21SF .50GI conversion 4.6" Barrel...2nd place 454 Casull Barnes X HP,expanded .65" ,Shot from Ruger Alaskan 2" Snub...3rd place 10mm Federal HydraShock expanded .63" Shot from Glock29 3.7" barrel.... 4th place The Gold Dot and Magtech .45 both expanded at .50" Shot from Glock21sf 4.6" Barrel... 5th place The Winchester SXT expanded at .48" Shot from Glock21SF 4.6" Barrel...and the Aguila had no Expansion when shot from Glock21SF 4.6" Barrel..The Aguila bullet is a fragmenting bullet that is suppose to fragment into 3 pieces when impacting soft tissue...In this case nothing happened so i gave it last place...As for penetration I have it listed below with the pics..The penetration results i tried to take exact measurements since it was hard to do this with a measuring tape using phone books..The Best penetration so far that i have seen from my guns is the .454casull penetrating at a whopping 15"......Hope you guys enjoy the pics and feel free to comment.

Here is the cool thing about the Glock Conversion..It is able to be loaded with a Kriss Mag Extension allowing you to carry 18+1 50gi Rounds...The Glock 21 and 20 frame is more than durable enough to handle the 50gi round for those of you who are unsure of the glocks stability...This has been tested and rated by Guncrafter Industries...

wOw! wOw! wOw!

I have owned a G20 from the year they were introduced, and count on it for my primary self defense round. I keep a Speer +2 bottom on my mags, and on two of them, they hold 18. 18 + 1 is the way I carry mine, and you have the same package in a .50 round. YIKES!

Fine report! Hope it is OK to bring this old post forward again, I am sure lots of new faces would like to see it, I know I did.

Here is a pic of some Lehigh Defense Max Expansion rounds in .45ACP to compare them to your 50GI rounds, these rounds in my Gel went around 8.50-9.00 " granted its not moving as fast as that .50 .. the round is not something Id ever carry in any of my weapons, but its fun to test..
