    he said from a gel...

    "Here is a recovered 75gr Gold Dot from gel. It impacted at roughly 1850fps, flipped twice, and penetrated roughly 21".

    Well that's not promising. Would like to know more about the gel if possible.

    Also, could this be (re)posted in your 75gr Gold Dot thread?

    Agreed.

    I had higher hopes than that.

    I would take clear gel tests with a grain of salt. Gold Dot is a street proven round and vetted in the lab as a good performer. Its one the best values on the market. Or you can go full retard barfcom and load M855 cause the mil. uses it

    I'd take the test with a grain of salt. Same gel showed no expansion from a 70gr TSX at well over 2000fps. 75gr GDSP is my go-to.

    It was tested in clear gel correct? If its where I think its from, I believe he uses clear gel(a certain tester named after a sandwich).

    Umm, the 75gr post, unless it is a typo it stated impacted at 1850fps. At which point I would assume we are either throwing it out a really short barrel, or most likely impacting at extended range, since from my understanding even out of a 10 inch barrel the round is doing over 2000FPS. For what most people are loading their rifles up for, HD inside of most likely 25 yards I am not sure I'd be concerned. If you were looking at terminal performance at longer ranges then possibly a concern.

    Anyway, that is my observation.

    A. Quit worthless necroposts.

    B. GD ammo has been proven. If you decide not purchase it based on questionable science, that leaves more for others.
