Both charts are definitely worth taking into consideration when choosing you’re carry ammunition.

Definitely an interesting idea.  I’d like to see the results in some ballistic gelatin.

The absence of a copper jacket, and the fact the hole isn’t perfectly centered makes me think it wouldn’t retain its weight very well (if at all).  I have no doubt it would expand like a banshee though.

You might want to take a look at this when considering what caliber and type of ammo to carry.

I never realized that the expansion and retention varied so much even within the same caliber depending on the style of bullet you use.

If only there were as many options for 223 ammo.  One can dream…
