Shot this through three filled water jugs, then it went into through the wooden wall of my barn, through a 1/4" sheet of plywood leaning on the other side and was laying like this in the dirt. all 6 holes in the jugs were bullet diameter which left me perplexed until I found the bullet....
9mm 4.25" barrel
I was about 8 feet from the first jug when i shot.
I did this test with a 147 grain HST and it was laying in the third jug fully expanded. Needless to say, the three boxes of these will be range ammo.
Winchester Ranger T 147 bought within the last month.... mad This is self defense ammo???

You did know 9mm only works in lungs and blows them clean out.


The older I become the more I am convinced that the voice of honor in a man's heart is the voice of GOD.

Apparently it doesn’t even need to expand to do so….

Looks like the plastic from the jug in the hollow point preventing water from hydraulically expanding the bullet.
