Re: Check out my gong!

JB,
Good eye! I edited it to read 2350, as it should have been. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I guess it'd have to have about a 60" barrel for that speed, eh? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Maybe impact angle... projectile doesn't strike the plate at a true 90 degrees. Compare jactets from short and long range and see if there is a noticable difference. Also could be from when they "splashed" onto the ground, "splash" hits pretty hard.

    Keep talking about shootin steel, this is good for us snow-bound guys who really need a steel-clanging fix. Give us some more of that T1 vs 500 Brinnel stuff, need more pictures... My trigger finger is humming so much I can hardly type [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Re: Check out my gong!

    Quick note then off to work.

    I can get T1 at a local fab shop for ten to 20 cents per pound (scrap). The head person at this fab shop told me that if someone claimed to shoot through 3/4 T1 plate with a .300 win mag that he wanted to see it. Well he was right.

    I will post detail photos of the jackets this evening if all goes right.

    The gong is hung from eye bolts screwed into the back at the top so it hangs with the top pitched forward (toward the shooter)so all shots are deflected more down than up. The splash digs a shallow trench in the ground along the plane of the gong.

    Back of 2. curled FOREWARD?!? at top.

    Dave.

    The light over my head just came on!! I read what you posted about the reason why the jackets curled but it didn't click untill now.

    Yes the jackets probably flattened then went skidding off the plate and sliced tward the ground where the edge bent one way or the other.

    I got it. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
