Federal 9mm 115gr JHP Train + Protect in Clear Ballistics Gel



Test Gun: Sig P229, Beretta Nano.
Barrel length: 3.9, 3 inches.
Ammunition: Federal 115gr JHP Train + Protect
Test media: 10% Clear Ballistics Gel.
Distance: 10 feet.
Chronograph: Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph G2.
Five shot velocity average: 1102, 1056fps
Gel Temperature 75 degrees.

In the ninth load in the budget 9 series, we take a look at the Federal 115gr Train + Protect JHP. As near as I can tell this round uses the same 115 grain bullet as Federal 9pb, 9pble, and the XM9001. This load also comes in a little on the higher side of $17.99 for a 50 round box.



From the Sig 229, I got an average velocity of 1102 with a high of 1110fps and a low of 1097fps.


Ten yards off hand five shots with the Sig P229

From the Beretta Nano, I got a five shot average velocity of 1056fps with high of 1070fps and a low of 1045fps.

Using the Sig 229 the first round in the bare gel had a velocity of 1126fps and penetrated to 10.5 inches. The recovered diameter was .64 inches and the recovered weight of 114.8 grains. The second round had a velocity of 1111fps and penetrated to 11.5 inches, expanded to .62 inches and had a recovered weight of 115.4 grains.



In the heavy clothed gel, the first round from the Sig had a velocity of 1124fps and penetrated to 16.5 inches. The recovered diameter was .54 inches and it had a recovered weight of 115.0 grains. The second bullet's velocity was 1134fps and penetrated to 18 inches. The recovered diameter was .40 inches and the weight was 115.3 grains.



Shooting the Nano in the bare gel the first round had a velocity 1075fps and penetrated to 16 inches. The bullet had a recovered diameter of .41 inches and weighted 114.8 grains. The second round also had a velocity of 1075fps and penetrated to 11.75 inches. The recovered diameter was .59 inches and the recovered weight was 115.2 grains.
