Looks like Hawks just cobbled together a few sources of data and published it.

There is also considerable debate regarding the existence of the Strasburg Goat Tests- the column labeled "AIT" is apparently meant to reflect data that source- despite its mention in a few gun magazines, no proof (documentation, photos, peer reviewed articles, etc.) of its existence...er...um...exists.

I am not sure where they got the gelatin penetration results- unsourced/generic "data" like that is hard to take seriously.
