If I'm counting with my fingers correctly this is the sixth in the Budget 9 series. This time we are taking a look at the Remington 9mm 115gr JHP High Terminal Performance. The price for this round was $13.99 and was tied for the lowest price.

The five shot velocity from the Sig P229 was 1052fps with a high of 1087fps and a low of 1029fps. The one round out of the group was totally me.


Ten yards off hand five shots with the Sig P229

From the Nano, I got a five-shot velocity of 1041fps with a high of 1070fps and a low of 1003fps.



The first shot fired for the P229 into the bare gel has a velocity of 1078fps and penetrated to 18.25 inches. The recovered diameter of the bullet was .51 inches and the recovered weight was 115.8 grains. The second round hit the block at 1089fps and penetrated to 16 inches. the bullet expanded to .52 inches and weighed 115 grains.



When shot into the heavy clothed gel the first round's velocity was 1132fps and penetrated to 17.5 inches. The recovered weight was 114.9 grains and the diameter was .52 inches. Number two had a velocity of 1091fps and penetrated to 20.5 inches and was recovered base forward. The recovered diameter was .51 inches and recovered weight was 114.9 grains.



Round one from the Nano into the bare gel had a velocity of 997fps and penetrated to 17 inches. The expansion was .43 inches and the recovered weight was 114.2 grains. The second round's velocity was 1009fps and penetrated to a depth of 20.5 inches. The expansion was .50 inches and recovered weight of 115 grains.

I had a typo on the penetration depth of the first round. It is 18.25 inches not 10.25.
