    Just curious. I've been looking and can find test of various rounds including WWB 147 gr. 9mm JHP. The results of that particular test were uninspiring. Are there any examples/videos, etc., of expansion test using the 230 gr. WWB .45 ACP load? Sincerely. Brucev.

    I have not tested the WWB ammo, but have handloaded the bullet to 850fps & tested in 2 denim layer o/ water & wetpack. They expand quite well, almost 70 cal. I am not fond of the ammo, but would handload the bullets for SHTF ammo. There are too many good factory loads to use WWB for SD IMO.
