I don't think so. Just go to his youtube channel, or contact him at the e-mail address above.

Andrew (bluefalcon) just released a video two days ago on AR15.com's youtube channel.

Brown Bear 223 Rem 55 gr Soft Point | Gel Test


An idea would be to reload this bullet to lower velocities to get an idea of the expansion threshold.

no posts here in a long time.

Since there is always the ongoing discussion about the "consistency" of M193 fragmenting, how about shooting 5-10 rounds of M193 (from at least a 16" barrel) into 10% gel to see if there are variations?

Great idea! We have a batch of tests pending, waiting on velocity data right now.

I recently fired a bha 556 69gr tmk into 10% clear gel and got about 15-16" of penetration using my 12.5-if I were to fund it, would you be able to replicate this into real gel to see of there are any result variances?

I don't know if you have the guns or ammunition to do it, but I've wondered how 124 grain HST (either +P or standard pressure or both) work through the micro 9s (Hellcat, Shield, 365).
I'd offer my Hellcat and ammunition to use as I have both std. and +P but you're a bit too far away from me to make that work.

Thanks!  "Ask and ye shall receive", indeed!
Looks like I'm GTG with either pressure level out of my Hellcat.  I'm happy.

I did a few tests a while back in the Clear Ballistics Gel. Mostly 44-40, but I did get in some 38, 357, 45 colt and 44 magnum. ALL FROM SINGLE ACTION REVOLVERS and a rifle or two. The "REVOLVER" usage replicated "rifle impact velocities" at certain distances.

The bullet "expansion" performance in the gel doesn't need to get confused with slower velocity full penetration's capabilities. Both the 200gr 44-40 and 250gr 45 Colt bullets traveling at only 700fps will completely penetrate the broadside of a horse at the shoulders. Meanwhile, "expanding design" bullets act like parachutes and would generally only penetrate 16 inches. The 44 Magnums were fun!!!

Would you be willing to test the cavity back bullets 7.62x39 125gr mkz? Looks like it could be the absolute hotness

Alsso would you do some of the AAC 55gr Sabre blade black tip? maybe the 62 and 75gr as well?

Like to see AAC 125gr Sabre Blade, 300blk from short barrel gel test. I’m willing to send a box to supply for the test.
