Ballistic gel test coming soon.
Jul 29th, 2022 at 10:14am
 
As the title sais, I will be testing many different projectiles on true ballistic gel from clearballistics. I will be testing from 10 feet back, using sharpened tips sling bullet, ranging from 45 gram bullets to 115 gram bullets, 1 inch 66.8 gram steel balls, .54 caliber 15.4 gram lead balls, stones, and using a 40# draw at 30 inches recurve bow using .309 diameter 550 grain arrows traveling at 145-155 fps as a reference since it can take deer easily.

I will also be posting a combination of formulas that solidly and simply shows the difference between projectiles. For instance, a baseball weighing 150 grams thrown at 90mph has the same energy as a stone weighing 150 grams thrown at 90mph, however the stone will kill u 100% of the time if it hits u in any vital area, whereas the baseball will injure u but is unlikely to kill. The set of formulas can explain in different measurements exactly how a specific projectile will cause dame and how much. It'll be posted hopefully later today.
