I found it interesting that for both cans of soda, a lot of the liquid was propelled back in the direction the bullet came from.

Not unlike frame 313 of the Zapruder film.

very neat.

almost had to have been a pistol caliber round.

45?


a 9mm might have made it through the bannana, but never the coke can

Cool vid.
I've seen the apple and card before.

I wouldn't have thought a banana would react like it did. I guess it's because it was contained inside the peal, so the banana itself became mush from the pressure before/as it blew open.

I've always enjoyed shooting eggs (and you get plenty of them when you have chickens/geese).

It looked like they were either using different calibers, or the zoom was changed between items. Maybe .38/.357 you think?

The short, stubby bullet looks like a .380

I want to see them repeat those shots with 7.62x25 hollow points.

Can was under pressure--unlike Kennedy's head.

You can learn a lot from watching bullet hits in slow motion.  

But, you really need to do the same shot hundreds of times to understand the general principal in a statistically valid way.

We need to do some testing to understand the JFK thing.

Unfortunately we need to test many different calibers, each caliber with many different loads, and each caliber/load combination from a variety of distances and angles.

A lot of ammo will be needed and perhaps millions and millions of 'targets'.

Fortunately, there is an adequate supply of targets and we know where to find them.

Let the science begin.

Ammo....up!

Take a good hard look at the two soda cans. Notice how the entrance "wound" is larger than the exit. I would have though that the opposite would have happened. This just goes to show you what hydrstatic shock is all about. This MIGHT explain the whole Kennedy question, with regard to the large entrance wound to the back of the head.
