The Winchester self defense ammo is the PDX1 Bonded 230 grain hollow point. It launches the 230 grain at 920 fps. The 230 grain bonded hollow point expands well and provides deep penetration. These are characteristics of an ideal self defense load. Recoil is the same as any 230 grain load which is very controllable.

The test media is ballistic gel covered with 4 layers of denim to simulate a real target.
