    GBW Legend Pro All Copper 115 grain HP

    Normally "new" products are the same old junk repackaged, but this is the first time I have ever seen a Hollow Point as wide as the Federal HST! So, I can't wait to test them out through some denim. I'm betting it would take a lot of material to clog that hole.



    Gotta get my son to drink milk fast so I have about 5 jugs to fill. And find some denim too.

    Looks like a DPX only black. Hopefully it performs as well.

      Yeah, don't know what that black coating is; but it makes it "Tacticool" if its black, right? Anything Tacticool has to be black Where is the emoticon for puke straight into the air when ya need one?

        Tested the GBW All Copper Hollow Point today. 4 layers of denim, shot right through the back pockets. A real butt-buster! Bersa Thunder Pro UC9 from about 10 or 12 feet away. The pictures tell the story.
        5 jugs of water, 4 layers of denim. Bullet went through both back pockets.


        Bullet found sticking out of the back of the 2nd jug

        Wow this is cool and fun!

          That bullet is made by Barnes. Same as the DPX but black. I am wondering if there is some molybdenum disulfide in the black coating? It's a very good self-defense cartridge, denim won't affect it, shoots through glass and doesn't lose its initial weight.

            Yours looks very similar to the picture on the box!

              A single bullet is not a very scientific sample, so I decided I would shoot another to see if it performed consistently. But this time, I decided I would shoot it out of a longer barrel to introduce a new variable. So I used my Bersa TP High Capacity 9 to see how this bullet performs with more velocity out the gate.
              Bullet found on the back of the 4th Jug this time! Lots more penetration than with the short-barreled UC.

              One petal broke off and was found in the bottom of the 2nd jug

              The four layers of denim went flying along with lots of water from the first jug exploding. Gotta say it was fun!

              Overall, I must say I'm impressed. This is about as good a performance that a 115 grain bullet has the potential to do. And since Federal does not make their HST in a 115 grain bullet, this is a niche that GBW fills with a very good performing and good priced Defense HP in all-copper. I learned online that the Colt all-copper 115 grain HP is actually made by GBW. The box does not say anything about Barnes, so I'm not sure. Remington now owns Barnes, so I'm not sure what Barnes actually makes anymore.

                Since the OP took the ammo out and ran it through a target, Bersa Chat decorum dictates that I move the thread from the Ammo Chat forum to 9mm Jug Test.

                Okay, okay......FakeBersaName called it to my attention in a PM. Since he's a man of the cloth, I believe I've served a higher purpose than just BC housekeeping. I feel pretty good about it anyway.

                  I only hope my humble denim/jug efforts are worthy of the acceptance of the greatest Bullet Tester of them all--NCFlyfisher!

                    I would not have thought that little difference in barrel length would have made that much difference in penetration, about double! 'Course, if a person is concerned about over penetration, the compact is the way to go.

                      mitcher: Yes, that extra penetration came from the difference between a 3.25" barrel and a 4" barrel; both were Bersa Thunder Pro's--UC9 and HC9. It always amazes me to see how far pistol cartridges do penetrate through tough materials. It ends up being more than you would normally guess.
