    In the October 2017 issue of SA Hunter Koos Barnard tested some ammo for hunting including the Impala 160gr bullets mentioned.

    To test penetration, he used a “wetpack” and below are the results.

    Ammo - weight - speed - penetration
    Impala - 160gr - 1465fps - 26.3 cm
    Peregrine Hog - 240gr - 1144fps - 14.8cm
    Peregrine Hog - 180gr - 1297fps - 13.9cm
    Hornaday - 225gr - 1291fps - 18.2cm
    PMP - 240gr - 1148fps - 16.6cm
    Hornaday XTP - 200gr - 1238fps - 13.9cm
    Nosler - 200gr - 1297fps - 14.2cm

    If you want more details (and there was quite a bit, including loads) I suggest you read the article, I am too lazy to type everything here.
