Thanks, good review. I tested the same ammo shooting through books and was amazed by its penetration compared to handgun rounds.

Have you tested the 154 gr. SP ammo? Also, can you post the link to the HP test? Thanks in advance.

How did the SP ammo differ from the FMJ and the HP? Any expansion? I've read from various sources that some expansion is seen vs. none on the HP rounds.

The SP expanded/fragged. I'll do a write up here of it one of these days.
