    Specifically Federal 9BPLE 115gr +P+ out of a Glock 26.

    Would it still be effective (penetration/expansion) out of such a short barrel?

    Just sit here & wait. There will be a dozen or so people who will come along & tell you that to use anything other than 147 gr. is insanity and speak of countless "Gello-Man" tests ad nauseum. As for me, all I use is 115 gr. +p+ cause it works on PEOPLE.

    I don't care about bullet weight as long as it penetrates and expends well. I just want to see some tests out f a short barrel.

    It clocks about 1250 -1275 fps out of a G26.

    Since it's moving slower it may penetrate more, since that would cause it to expand at a slower rate, but still reach the same expanded size. Just a theory.

    I understand where you are coming from, but it is so hard to find good volunteers for bullet testing.

    :supergrin:

    This stuff is available for really cheap these days. $15.95 for a box of 50. I am considering several boxes of the stuff. At one time 115 grain was the standard for 9mm. I would use the load and be confident with it. After all, they say if something is worth shooting, then it is worth shooting twice.

    If you just have to fire 9mm at light speed, it is called the .357 Sig.

    I've shot +p+ Gold Dots out of a G17 at a pin shoot. That is a NASTY round. Lots of beautiful bowling pin carnage. heehee.

    The round has legendary stopping power. I wouldn't want to get hit with it. I carry it on the streets of NYC.

    Try several SD loads out of your gun to see which one your gun likes. They'll all work on BG's. Mine likes 124+P Gold Dots the best.
