Left to right, 9mm Gold Dot, Win PDX1 and UMC JHP. Both GD and PDX expanded to approximate .63 while the UMC grew to around .52. Also, the UMC shows signs of core/jacket separation whereas the first two remained unified.

I'd use the UMC in a pinch, but think the first two are well worth the extra $$'s for self defense.

I like the expansion of that copper-colored bullet at the top of the second photo! :D

What were the weights of the JHPs you tested?

GD & PDX are 124, UMC 115.

A bit more data... The PDX stopped in the third jug creating only an entry hole. The GD remained inside the third jug but punched holes in both sides and knocked the fourth over. The UMC exited the third jug and was found on the ground between the third and fourth.

The tests I've seen on Brass Fetcher and other places tend to make me favor Gold Dots over everything else. They seem to be consistently the top performer in all tests.
