Active Response Training put up some more test results from retired police chief Jeff Chudwin.
Includes a few more different kinds of 5.56/.223 ballistic test that was not reference in my previous AR-15 defensive ammo article. The .223/5.56 that I prefer (all-around) are bonded soft point rounds. Such as the Federal 62 gr tactical (in this article), Federal Fusion (affordable, easier to find), Nosler Defense 64 gr bonded or the SSA 5.56 PPT 64 grain bonded. Hornady GMX did well through glass but made a small hole through tissue and over penetrate, not the best choice.
The all copper rounds perform great against barriers and retain all the weight but over penetrate due to little expansion. http://www.activeresponsetraining.net/ar-15-rifle-ballistic-gel-testing-results-best-choices-for-a-defensive-rifle-round

The House voted 64-33 to override the governor’s veto, and the Senate followed suit on Saturday, with a vote of 23-11.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that the new law makes West Virginia the eighth state in the country to “implement what gun rights activists call ‘constitutional carry.’” West Virginia’s new law is part of what the Free Beacon said is “a national trend that began in 2003,” when only Vermont allowed concealed carry without a permit.
Bloomberg and boys are furious. Hopefully next year or two, Virginia is to follow. For the past 2-3 years, our country is heading towards more liberty and rights of the people. Continue reading “West Virginia Becomes the 8th Constitutional Carry State” »
