Gold Dots are certainly tough. I had forgotten to copy/paste the performance data into my post, though. I've corrected that. The penetration is a bit lacking.

Once I get through most of the loads that I'm really interested in, I'll go back and retest the most promising ones with multiple shots to see what the statistical variation is.

That would be very nice of you.

It looks to me like the 200gr xtp is better suited to full power 10mm velocity than the 180gr XTP
That is interesting because hornady would lead you to believe it would be vise-versa

It's not really very conclusive because I forgot the denim in the first, higher velocity test. I'll have to do it again to see if the 200gr XTP functions right through denim at that velocity.

Gel is obviously a different medium than water, but all three XTPs open to the classic XTP expansion when I have shot it through denim into water. These were at various speeds from 1100 to 1400 fps. Same expansion. Same mushroom. 4 layers of denim. After a bunch of different tests, I can say that I have not seen one not expand.

I am a bit surprised by the non-expanding XTP in your test. Did that rotate/tumble by chance? Or did it bore straight through?

It did come to a rest facing rearwards. We shouldn't really draw any conclusions from one test shot. It could be the velocity was too low or even a rare statistical anomaly. In any case, I'll definitely repeat a lot of these tests.

It is important to remember, though, that water typically shows the absolute most possible expansion/upset/fragmentation possible with a particular bullet. I've seen bullets penetrate LESS through water than through gelatin.

Personally I'd love to see some more xtp stuff.... Very curios if it can be a reasonable 10mm sd projectile or if its just going to fight to expand too much.

I believe the 180 gr XTP is a good choice. Other folks have gotten good expansion from it and it performed well in my own test. As I mentioned, I'll probably revisit most of these tests and make sure there are multiple shots each time, but I expect the 180 gr XTP to be one of the best performers.

Data for each test is in the description on the YouTube page.
