What is the thickness of wet magazines to simutate the thickness of an Elk? I can't get my hands on any bones so the shoulder shot is not a possibility and I was just wondering what you all use for testing penetration tests and roughly what amount in inches in wet magazines or newspaper makes up for animal flesh. IE 2" wet newspaper = 3" animal flesh.

Thinking of a lung/heart shot...

Of course nothing is perfect but what do other people use to get an "idea" of what a bullet will do.
