    100%, but you still need to be able to deal with a jammed up pistol even if you've run 10000 rounds of your favourite hollowpoint without ever having an issue.

    Personally Golden Sabre isn't my favourite in 9mmP. It has a tendency to shed its jacket much more easily than other rounds.

    Obviously. But that is not my point and you know it.

    You are far less likely to experience a stoppage with something that you have properly tested, and accepted as a result of the testing, than something that you haven't.

About 1 minute later, this thing seems to wake up and starts swinging tusks around, with us climbing the cattle rails and banging on the roof for the farmer to stop. A quick thinking farm hand opens the rear, and with a hard kick rolls it off on to the ground. Draw the P07 and two shots to the back of the head the warthog is finally not moving.

    Afterwards we're doing that nervous laughter loading it...again.. and I'm assured the ammo will do as Doug Marcaida says "It will keeeel!"
    That is really helpfull thanks.

    I'd trust all the other gel tests instead. The Ranger T 147gr aces pretty much everything when gel is used.

    If you're a fan of unconventional tests, heres one where it does well :

    Target made of beaver hide, pork chops, pork ribs, 8 inches of clear gel, and then pork ribs, pork chops and beaver hide again with it being covered with t-shirt and sweat shirt.
    All the 147gr Ranger T rounds were caught in the beaver hide at the back or t-shirt at the back. All opened nicely.

    Those meat tests are useless and don't add value.

    Dead meat is not the same as living meat, nor is it homogeneous and repeatable like Gelatin.
