Federal .38 spl +P 130gr HST in Clear Ballistics gel.

*Note* This test was conducted with Clear Ballistics Gel. Clear Ballistics is a synthetic gel and does not correlate with Organic gelatin like Vyse Ballistics gelatin.

I haven’t seen many tests of this ammo. I think it’s because it’s a little hard to find. I finally found a box at Wal-Mart last time I was there, a little over $25 for twenty with tax. Shot into Clear Ballistics gel at a distance 10 feet using an S&W Airweight model 442 with a 1.875-inch barrel. My coronagraph is still in disrepair so I will have to shoot it for velocity after I get it fixed.
