I love digging bullets out of the mud. We shoot into a clay river bank on the farm and I often find bullets in remarkably good shape. I have found 300 grain XTP 45 bullets fired from my muzzle loaded in nearly perfect shape. No expansion at all, hardly any marks at all.

Looks like the Gold Dots expaned more did they retain as much weight as the Hornady?

I like the weight retention and expasnion of the gold dot. Thanks for the info. Hope you get a chance to test hydra shocks. Since the bullets were different weight you can't compare match velocity but do you have any info on feet per second? Do you have a Chrony?

Going to frozen jug test some fedral classics hi-shock's ,Berry's plated hp and some crazy turbo looking things I can't think of the name right now.
Wish I had some fedral hydro-shock's I almost never even look at wallmart ammo any more :roll:

Neat. Speer is honest when it tells us "bonded bullets"
Too cool man. I'll have to try that!

After reading the last few posts here, I'm feeling pretty good about the gold dots in my HD guns! :)

Can't wait! I have .40's & .45's, and I want to know I've got the best loaded for defense. Thanks RT for taking the time to publish your results. 8)
