As unbelievable as this sounds, I was shooting at a plastic quart oil container in the back yard and it somehow managed to stop the round. It's the cheap .40 cal winchester in the white box, 165gr.



I can't imagine this is normal

sounds like a new form of body armor on the horizon!

It was fired from my Glock.

It has very slight deformation, lengthwise, due to the polygonal barrel. But other than that I don't see anything.

EDIT:
Meant to say hexagonal barrel. I was thinking of my old USP when I said polygonal.

Even a smoothbore would leave more marks than what is on that bullet in the picture. ??

This is a high speed capture of said projectile exiting the handgun:








God I'm bored.

How often does a plastic quart of oil container (empty) stop a .40 cal at 100ft?



Easy question. Easier answer.

If drawn from a dash mounted holster, on a school campus, with a letter from a Dean, while enroute to the Post Office, a plastic quart of oil container (empty) will indeed stop a .40 cal with no tool marks at 100ft every single time.






YMMV/ WWYPFI.
