Default Gelatin tests: Federal's new 10mm 180 gr JSP, plus a couple .357 hand loads

http://youtu.be/KTAdVZXLnb0

10mm Federal 180 gr Vital Shok Trophy Bonded Jacketed Soft Point fired from 4.5" barrel EAA Witness into calibrated gelatin.

BB: 599.8 fps, 3.5"

Impact velocity: 1,270 fps
Penetration: 16.7"
Retained weight: 177.6 gr
Max expansion: 0.635"
Min expansion: 0.594"

Notes:

One petal was shed and left at about the 6.75" mark. I did not include denim because this is not a hollow point projectile and it is most likely to be used for hunting or animal defense. I doubt that denim would make any substantive difference in penetration or expansion.
