Self Defense Precision Delta reload
« on: January 28, 2019, 10:35:17 PM »
Has anyone tested the 124 JHP bullet from Precision Delta on a gel block to test its penetration and efficacy for possible use as a SD round as well as practice round?

I don't believe the PD JHP bullets are designed to expand on impact.  They are meant as a target bullet, not as a self defense bullet.

That's true from what I have seen.

I have shot them into a ballistic gel block and they do not expand like a typical SD bullet would.

My son gave me a ballistic gel block for fathers day a couple years ago.

They seem to be more of a competition type bullet but that being said it would hurt pretty bad and cause a bunch of blood if one did hit you...?

Thanks for letting me know you have tried into a gel block.  I was curious to know how it performed.  I understand it is for non SD use and that is what I only use it for.

It's in a class like the Hornady HAP. It looks like an XTP, but it's for target only.

They shoot awesome in competition situations and have energy for a marginal steel hit to knock it down.....that's what   I like about them.
