SD Ammo Comparisons

Since I had some time on my hands, I figured I'd run my own tests to confirm or refute manufacturer claims and attempt to corroborate the test results from sites like Lucky Gunner Labs and Mouse Gun Addict.

Gun was a Micro9 Raptor, distance about 1' from target. Gel blocks were (approx.) 12"x6" square set end-to-end so as to get to a 24" depth per FBI minimum requirements of 12"-18" penetration.

Obviously this was not an exhaustive test. There are may very good SD rounds and it's not my desire to start a 'magic bullet holy war', but this serves as some very good information about reliability for those who carry smaller handguns. Hopefully I'll do another set with different loadings to compare and contrast.

Submitted for your consideration. Make of it what you will.

Video (5 rounds shot on a different day, but you get the point):
