Colin Cassidy: I'm looking to get a 9mm handgun soon. Just trying to get a good idea of
the defensive rounds available. With a round like this that penetrates a
good distance, would you be concerned about lethally wounding a potential
bystander on the other side of your target? Or would the bullet not have
enough remaining energy after passing through a human torso?
samiam1150: The word is delapidated, not delapitated. Nice vid otherwise.
Andy W: I would love to see more hogs head ballistics videos. They are not
perfectly scientific but they do tell us something about a rounds potential
bartonmd: About the cost, you can get this stuff in 50rd "LE" packs online for
$25-$26, so even 100rds of it is only $53 or something.
Uniform Tango 74: Good vid. I'll have to pick up a box or two of this round. Thanks!!!
Ten DoubleMike: Fantastic real world test!!! Super test.
Nun Ya: I'd like to see this matched against the Hornady Critical Duty +P.
LV PREPPER: HOLY HOG HEAD.... my E.D.C is a Ruger P95 9mm With the same round, now I
know what it can do, I ran 100 rounds through it to make sure the run and
it was flawless, great Vid
DIESELPOWERSTROKE: 9MM IS MY FAVORITE ROUND AND SO IS THE SPEER GOLD DOT.
glenwood89420: I really LOVE these tests. People can claim ballistics gel replicates human
tissue all they want... but what about bone and cartilage? or the
differences in skin, muscle tissue, and tendons? Ballistics gel leaves ALOT
to still be desired.
gapster46: Certainly a different result than thru ballistic gel. More of a real world
test. Good video. The Gold Dots are my carry ammo, and have been for some
Frank Last: Doc what would you recommend for the Glock 26. I watched both your videos
on the Speer Gold Dot 124 +P and 124 +P in the Short Barrel load and both
had great expansion. I currently have the SGD 124 +P SB load in the G26
SnowLobo95: I love those Gold Dots! Great test as usual DTD. You are showing us the
performance of a bullet under some not so ideal circumstances. Invaluable
phishst1cks: thats gotta hurt..
Patrick Floyd: "Thats gunna pretty well jack you up" Classic!
hmiranda71: excellent video i get purchade
Hazama Yakiba: Sweet Round, great illustrative video.I'm still waiting for you to do the
same Hog's Head Ballistic Test on CorBon PowRBall 100gr 9mm +P @ 1,475fps.
Come'on... I can't wait forever !
sixgunfun78: Thank you for doing these type of tests. Real scenarios like this give
better results than ballistic gel. Keep up the great vids!!!
vizi0123: Thanks for the web site.. Good deals.
762x54rgun: well... i just subbed. ammo tests with real materials like bone and
whatnot. very interesting. your xm193 vid was great too
thenowandaway: it is fun watching your test..can you run a 124gr golden saber remington..i
carry this in both g19 and g26, the tests i have seen are good too but a
hogs head or old chicken is my fav...thanks Doc..some place you have..where
are you? i am in south jersey
TheDiamondback45: You can never go wrong with the M&P. Great line of semi-autos. I reviewed
the M&P .45 and I carry it with Speer Gold Dot 230gr JHP's. Love those
rounds. There beastly.
hmiranda71: purchased today great cartridge
Jeremy Franklin: And that is exactly whey this is my carry ammo! :)
scooter17568: Another great review.
David Herrin: Awesome video. Love it
mcrafton89: Good ammo use it in all my carry guns.Thanks for the test.
cyberjayone123: Doc this is Jay again. Ran out of characters to type. You can email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks again
Cholly Dobler: After watching a few of his videos, I don't think he's that type of person.
Also, that would be a very expensive test if he bought that live animal for
this specific purpose. I'm sure the head was just destined to be used in
Spam or something if he hadn't acquired it.
John Ridlehuber: like your videos and the tests it would add to them (I think) if you would
include the distance you shoot from
Kick Buttowski: Do you guys hunt the hogs or buy the heads?
nkmac171: who steals the hog eyes
Cholly Dobler: I'd contact the manufacturer if at all possible. Don't take chances. You
might lose a couple of fingers or some eye sight.
lostandfoundinchrist: I am an advent shooter. I am also a vegan. I hope you didnt kill that hog
just for shooting purposes.
LTDANTN: Good analysis. Have you shot the SW M&P 40? That is what is use as my
Cholly Dobler: Back in the day, various military researchers around the world would use a
live goat to compare weapons' terminal ballistics against each other. I
think the reasoning was based on the similarities in chest size to that of
a human being.
tony crosby: liked the video alot!! shooting the hog head really shows what this round
will do.. my carry load for sure!!!
xadamx1776: i like the hogs head, seems like a good way to demonstrate real life
RichTF2: good load!
Jared Hilliard: Test the liberty usm4 9mm.
AkaJohnnyT23: Any chance of getting this same test using speer gold dot 9mm 115gr.
TheDiamondback45: Great video. Thanks
Taprack13: Could you please do a 147 grain Federal HST hog head ballistic test?
jas0nkendrick: I would like someone to do a test of the standard pressure 124gr gold dots.
There are several tests of the +p ones but I can't find anything on the
standard pressure. I have 2 boxes of them and would like to use them in my
home defense pistol but I would feel better after seeing a successful test.
PaladinO: Real world? I've yet to hear about anyone getting into a shootout with a
hog. lol j/k nicely done!
Hog Doc: Would you consider testing the Buffalo Bore (Barnes copper) .357 mag 140
gr. bullet? Love to see penetration and expansion. thanks
dontaggart177: Well done! dt
Roger: Leaves no doubt about SGD 124+P Ever gonna test the SGD 124+P SB version?
Danny Griffin: > Your mentioning "dilapidated" twice It's worse than that. He said
"dilapitated" twice, which isn't even a word. Interesting test, though.
gislertom: Wow... Just out of curiosity.. how thick was that skull bone? Also... this
also shows the absolute necessity to know what lies beyond your target...
That would have wounded a bystander, possibly fatally.
