    I also tested 200 gr HAP over 8.3 gr of 800-X at 1,153 fps but I didn't get any video of it. Here are the numbers and pics, though:

    Penetration: 19.4"
    Weight retention: 198.1 gr
    Max expansion: 0.623"
    Min expansion: 0.442"

    Thanks Andrew. The BB load is interesting. I did not know that they finally put a proper bullet back into their 180 gr loading (after loading that Montana Gold target JHP for a few years). Also curious that they used R-P brass instead of Starline for that. Looks like a load worth consideration, I would think.

    Another interesting note is that they didn't remove the bell from the case after seating the bullet. That MT Gold bullet did pretty well for not being a premium bonded defense bullet, I think.

    Great videos. You continue to do great work Andrew.

    That 165 gr GDHP continues to impress. That is probably the most stout of all of the .40 cal offerings, in my opinion.

    Where did you get the 200 gr GHDP?

    RMR is company that had the 200grain Gold Dots which were pulled from 40S&W ammo made for LE by Federal back in 2009. They were a limited supply and were sold quickly.
