that would still hurt worse than a poke in the eye.....

thanks for the time and effort BF, always appreciated.

Would it be possible to show side by side comparisons of the low and normal velocity gel shots? iirc, you've done normal velocity shots of Mk318, Mk319, and M855A1 right?

Thank you for your Testing!

I just wounder if you can make a test to compare Ruag Action Styx and MEN QD , both in 5.56x45mm
Thank you!

Love your work.

I’m curious why you didn’t test it around 1900-2000 FPS. That is where a bunch of guys were developing loads with their pistol length bbls. I’d love to see some testing against soft armor, too.

Cuz he's trying to find the lowest velocity it will still fragment at

Very nice set up. Do you agree that the bullets very well may have yawed and tumbled??.
I did some testing in the late 90s and saw a lot of 308 168gr match kings yaw and tumble in gelatin shot at the 600yd range.
Velocitys and wound channel at this range were similar to your short range test..
By tumble I mean yawing and then going end over at about maybe 3/4 to one full turn before exit.
You can see this in very high speed camera footage in the old army tests of 556 and 308 FMJ back in the day.

It would be nice to see the performance out of a rifle length barrel.

Reading gel without a recovered projectile is like reading tea leaves, but the track looked very similar to the Mk318 reduced velocity.
