For defense in a 40 grainer? Which gives the best expansion and penetration in balance?

VARMAGGEDON which is why we use it now for our Pro1 and not the V-max that we started with 14 years ago.

V-Max is a 35 year old design.

Nosler is a modern design with a much thinner jacket that does substantially more damage.

do we still get the "minimum required 12" of penetration in gel?

Sometimes. I place absolutely NO merritt into the 12 inch bullshit.
