Hornady .357 Sig 135gr Critical Duty in Clear Ballistics gel.

A coworker was curious about two loads he has in .357 Sig and gave them for me to try out. The one I will report on is the Hornady Critical Duty 135gr FlexLock in .357 Sig. Test gun used is a Glock 31 with a four and a half inch barrel shot into two 16 inch blocks of Clear Ballistics gel.
