Double Tap 230 gr Equalizer gelatin test

10mm Double Tap 230 gr Equalizer fired from 4.5" barrel EAA Witness through four layers of denim into calibrated gelatin.

BB: 580.2 fps, 3.7"

Impact velocity: 947.9 fps (approximate)
Penetration of 95 gr ball: Greater than 30.0"
Penetration of 135 gr JHP: 30.9"
Retained weight of 135 gr JHP: 134.8 gr
Expansion of 135 gr JHP: N/A


Some explanation is warranted on this one. The bullet did not make two separate impacts as advertised. In fact, both projectiles remained together for roughly 18"-20" of travel through gelatin. The JHP did not expand but it did deform at the base where the ball pressed against it. The jacket appears to be copper plated steel. The 95 gr ball exited the block at about the 30" mark.


The video is posted on my YouTube channel, if you are interested.

Cool report Andrew, as usual!

That ammo kind of seemed a bit gimmicky to me. What are your thoughts after seeing them in gel?

Lots of penetration, for sure.

I wouldn't want to depend on it. I suspect performance might be somewhat erratic.

Thank you Andrew.


Frankly the ammo seems like a gimmick to me. I can't imagine a situation I would prefer it to a single slug load.


Of course, now that I just said it, all future ammo innovation will be multi-projectile loadings...

I totally agree. One more reason not to like Double Tap.

The chronograph produced an error on the actual test shot but I took a shot over the chronograph immediately after and this was the result: 947.9 fps, which is roughly consistent with Intercooler's five shot average of 1,038 given it was a little cold the day I tested and he used a different pistol. It could be erroneous, too, though. It is possible that the projectiles were already separated a bit and that could cause an error.
