do you feel your test between 147gr hst +p and standard pressure 147gr hst were accurate?
and by that i mean..... if we were to take 147gr hst +p and standard pressure 147gr hst back to back in 100 different test in 100 different ways that the standard pressure would always penetrate more than the +p due to the wider expansion of the +p creating the parachute effect and slowing it down more rapidly?
I can't guarantee it, but the +P version may penetrate less in most gel tests due to the higher energy and faster expansion. In the real world, which is what we train for, it may not make any difference; especially when you consider bone, trajectory, body mass, etc.
