    When I started testing it was out of curiosity and desire "touch the stove" myself. Then kept going as a stream of consciousness....

    So the testing made sense to me, but might be hard to follow if you weren't there from the beginning.

    With some renewed interest in some of the testing threads, I thought I would start from the beginning and compile all the published tests I did.


    Started comparing 380 to 9mm with different barrel lengths.

    Trying to get a "real world" impression of what gel results look like.

    https://www.glocktalk.com/threads/quick-ballistics-test-fruit-shooting-with-g42-and-g34.1654547/

    Second fruit shooting vid with 380 XP and 10mm JHP and XD.

    https://www.glocktalk.com/threads/q...42-vs-g26-vs-g34.1654105/page-6#post-24052390

    Seeing if hot 380 could stand up to 9mm.

    https://www.glocktalk.com/threads/final-g42-ballistic-testing-xtp-over-xd.1661502/

    Getting into more than bare gel testing. What does 380 do when it "fails?"

    https://www.glocktalk.com/threads/g42-hollow-point-failure-test-8-layers-denim.1662442/

    Would Makarov come closer than 380 to 9mm?
