Any problem with the HSTs or the Gold Dots clogging going through heavy denim/clothing? i know the rangers are made with a small cavity to reduce clogging.
I already answered the 180gr vs 165gr HST question in a previous response.
In my experience, HSTs/Ranger Ts perform better than Gold Dot after going through heavy clothing. This is illustrated in my pictures above.
My experience is that bullets with small HPs are less robust expanders, particularly after clothing.
