Barnes Tac XP EDC carry rounds!

Well, we had a Hornady Law Enforcement ammunition gel test shoot this morning. Very cool stuff. Learned a lot about the performance of bullets through various barriers and saw how they did first hand.

The nice thing was got to shoot my personal self-defense rounds I loaded myself at the gel tests, and they performed better than I even expected. Perfect formation, huge cavity and 100% weight retention. 185 grain Barnes Tac XP .45 bullets, sitting on new Starline Brass, CCI primers and Longshot powder. And this is what they looked like after 1 into bare gel and two into heavy clothing barriers and then gel. I think these are a keeper for my EDC carry!
