From what I remember.....
The best rounds were Rainier and Bonded Gold dots. The Rainier would become teardrops of lead and most of the lead would stay together. The Gold dot did a little better.

Gold Saber and other non-bonded rounds lost the jacket very quickly and then the lead continued through the gel like the Rainier.

In a totally different way....I really liked the Triton Quickshock. It dumped all its energy in the first 12 inches breaking the setup I had the gel sitting in. The bullet would break into 3 or 4 sections and head off in unknown directions sometimes exiting the gel. If I were to design an anti-personnel round this would be it. But they no longer make this bullet.

It is really too bad I lost most of these pictures. They were interesting.
One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.

Never cruel or cowardly.
Never give up. Never give in.
