    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.
