if your on a budget just use water milkjugs.

1" of gel = 1.5" in water.

I saw that too. It's tempting to be able to test my own TAP clone loads for 5.56mm on more than just velocity.

Looks cool. Kind of pricey though.

How long has this been out. Any chance it will go down in price?

very odd... yet an interesting idea.

$6.49 per test. I don't see much "cheap" BGel out there anywhere actually. I thought about it once and looked around for gel and thought again.

Ahh but you can re use it up to 10 times, soooo tht brings it down in price when you think about it. Beats one use and toss for that price.

I asked about this and Forest said that in another thread about it, that that according to Dr. Roberts it does not accurately reflect the temporary cavity.

This stuff is suposed to mimick the tissue/muscle of big game animals, so I don't know how well it would work for comparing to effects in human tissue muscle. I original thought that if it calibrated the same as 10% ballistic gel then it would be a good way to do some backyard ballistics testing on stuff. I'm still waiting for Dr. Roberts to chime in about this stuff.

Found one of them link

Saw one web sight that made numerous errors in the use of the material, including too small a block for the caliber tested and inadequate interpretation of the test results: www.theoutdoorquest.com/perma-gel_ballistic_gelatin.htm
