    Default Winchester White Box 115gr 9mm Para.

    This bullet was fired, from a Glock 43, into the shoulder of a sub adult warthog at ± 1/2 meter. It passed through the shoulder muscle of the near shoulder and was recovered under the skin of the opposite shoulder after breaking the heavy shoulder bone. Total penetration ±8". The entry hole into the chest cavity seem to indicate that the bullet started expanding in the near shoulder. The skin of the far shoulder was pierced, probably by bone splinters. Recovered weight was 114,7gr.

    Very impressive considering that it came out of a short barrel and it broke heavy bone.
    Pain is just weakness leaving the body.

    White box. Exactly the same bullet as the 115gr Silvertip or 115gr +P+ Ranger JHP.

    Luckily it did not ruin the Bacon parts of the warthog.

    This is why I'm so keen on proper gel tests on the S&B 115gr JHP. I'm not sure about their HP design but it does run a little faster than the Winchester. And their 115gr FMJ's are dandy.
