TAC 15 vs. Car Door! Field Point and Ramcat Penetration Test

I am doing some penetration testing of a barrier-blind bullet for the 300 BLACKOUT and realized it would be fun to put a crossbow through some of the same tests. I use my TAC 15 to shoot a car door with a field tip and a Ramcat just to see what would happen.

The Ramcat showed its known weakness by shedding two of its blades. The weaker blades are the trade-offs made to get the good flight, though, especially from faster bows.

I also think a different arrow than the stock PSE arrows would've done better. The radial weave is just not designed to deal with hard impacts, and it shows in these tests.

That's pretty amazing!
So a car-door doesn't appear to provide much protection against a Tac15 crossbow.

At least, I wouldn't want to be standing behind that car door!

Not for the person sitting next to the door, anyway.
