    Awesome Snub Balistics Info

    I have seen a couple threads debating the actual balistics of bullets out of snub nose .38's or other calibers. Here is a page which has some great info/pics of snub tests, which you can compare to other ammo tests. Have fun!

    Water isn't the greatest media to test bullet expansion in flesh. In leiu of 10 percent jello, one can use wet news print. What I've done, and haven't tried it yet, is shread news print and stuff milk jugs full. I figure to soak 'em over night before heading to the range. It'll allow multiple shots on the bottles and be easier to transport and less messy. I haven't had a chance to do it, yet, though.

    I was going to test penetration of a .22 mini revolver against a hot loaded .22 caliber NAA super companion and maybe my .31 remmy against that. .38 is well documented. I've chronographed all my loads, .38, .45 Colt, .45ACP, 9x17, 9x18, 9x19, all my rifles, everything I own. I handload so a chronograph is a GREAT tool I didn't have prior to the early 80s when the Chrony, first of the really affordable chronographs, came out.

    There is another penetration/expansion sight that gives more intuitive results because they use 10 percent ballistic gelatin.

    Ya, I have been to brassfetcher and the boxotruth many times. i think I was excited about this page because I hadnever seen it before. maybe it's new, i don't know.

    I am going to try that newspaper/water jug Idea. Seems like a good test.

    I got the milk jug/news print idea from whatching a youtube test where the guy did that. Seems like a better ideal all around that just water jugs, especially when I have to drive 4 miles to the range and set up. I have some jugs ready, if I ever get the time. I want to test some .22 and black powder stuff when I can get around to it. At least I have the hardware ready.
