Any thoughts on this? I have seen a handful of videos from some of the better youtube channels that show some pretty positive results from this bullet. I would be using it in my 4 inch K frame or my 6 inch Security Six.
My experiments, with .380 & .40 calibers have been promising. The wound tracks resemble the ones made by hollow point ammo. Not anything near manufacturers claims. To be fair, the manufacturer says that water-based gelatin is a better indication.
The clear-gel test video clearly shows the Hydra-shoks were better. They had a more appropriate penetration depth and expanded to a larger diameter. Do not measure the track width when evaluating pistol ammo.
