    Anyone do any penetration tests? I am really just wondering how it stacks up against 9mm, .45, .40 S&W, 10mm, .357 Magnum, etc.

    Thanks!

    Inebriated,

    Rather than waste bandwidth giving you a hard time about your question, I'll give you what little I have found for FMJ and RN bullets-

    You might check brassfetcher.com and goldenloki.com , too- there's some FMJ test results on both sites that may be of interest you.

    Out of the auto rounds I have tested for penetration the full power 10mm 200 grain FMJ's penetrate the deepest. Very similar to a non expanding bullet in a 357 magnum. I do not own a 357 Sig but have tested out quite a few 9mm FMJ's and you can bet the Sig with a FMJ is going to go deeper than a 9mm.

    I guess that highway patrolmen need to have a car-penetrating round. :cool:
