after all the topics on bergers i wanted to do a little test for myself (for my own peace of mind and for my own questions on my setup). i started serfing the net looking for some realistic testing how they would perfom shot into an animan. they are maybe out there but i couldnt find them. so i started trying to figure out how i could make something cheap and similar to shooting a vld into the vitals of an animal. i ended up making a 24in box. the bullet would first go threw 3 inches of cardboard (rib meat, hide ect) after the cardboard i placed a piece of 1/4 waferboard to simulate missing ribs. i also cut a piece of 3/4 plywood (as if hitting the ribs). after the plywood i decided to make up a dough because i had read the ballistic gel was similar to shooting threw mucsle so i wanted something softer and more similar to shooting threw lungs and other vitals. the vital (dough) box was 18 inches long. i mixed the dough to the consistency i thought was similar to what i wanted. i had read in another post about checking the depth of the hallow point so i had checked my box i had. i cant remember how many of each but i will guess.. i believe i had 18 bullets with a .015 depth... around 60 with a depth of .060 and about 20 with a deep hallow point of .100 or more. i decided to test the shallowest and deepest hallowpoints. my pictures dont tell the story as well as i would like but i will explain each pic in a post right after i post the pics. i dont know what you guys will get out of this test but all i can say is they performed exactly how i have read they should and didnt notice any different performance in the different point depths.. and i still am a berger believer.
