    Nice tests, surprised by #2 results.

    What other barriers are you planning on testing?

    I'd be wearing a sweatshirt at 78F.

    481,

    Cool test results. Like Bob I am taken back a tad at test 2. You and I talked about that today on the phone a bit, but still.... wow !

    Looking forward to the next test you run. If I ever get over this situation I got going on and can get the time to get some testing and photo's done myself, I will jump in. For now, "as you both know," I got to tend to other matters et. You guys are a real blessing and adding real life Intelligence to this forum. ;)


    I think much good will come out of CC if folks that "want to learn," will study on these test results, and embrace the truth about the findings.

    Any way. Thanks for the info and the post, and we will see what happens next. ! ;)

    Good post amigo.


    Talk with y'all later

    Thanks!
    have agreat Fathers day, .... Every one !

    Even premium bullets fail as we've seen, another bullet was added to that list this morning.

    This is so correct. I drive a Ford F-150 ranch truck. BUT, I have seen Mercedes and other "premiunm" rides broke down on the side of the road.

    Just a little sage observation there. ;)


    Great test Bob, saw them this morning. Like 481, I too thought I heard a loud thump coming from west of me. Chronny still intact? haha.

    Looking good boys, and I am really learning some interesting things here from ya both. Looks like we're all getting some surprises eh?



    Later

    Yeah, that was Desert Dawg leaping at those exploded water bags as they fell from orbit; we all got drenched every time. :tongueout:

    A bag of water falling from the sky is bad enough, but a whole box??? :rofl:

    Love 'em (the 147grXTP's) and my WWB 147 gr'ers as well. Don't care what anyone says these always come through in all our test thus far. 'Yours and Bob's' now, and mine here a while back on the place. :thumbsup:

    Good stuff amigo !
    Good report and good results.

    Keep it up ! Hopefully I can get cranked back up in the fall.

    Wondered why I was seeing clouds to the east.

    17" of penetration is a lot, adds performance confidence if we have to go up against those 3XL/4XL felons.

    What was your water penetration distance and how many bags blew up?

    CM,

    Glad you liked the test.

    I just couldn't let page one end without this one being done and I am always happy to test one of our "favorites". :winkie:

    There are other designs out there that are deserving of our "attentions".

    I'll try not to disappoint.

    Hope you get back to the 'correct environment' "sooner" as opposed to "later" so that you can have 'fun' again, too.

    I've enjoyed reading Doc's informative posts when he's on GT.

    The .357mag/158gr SJHPs we carried certainly gave excellent penetration with substantial exit 'splatter'. We trained using sights and/or focusing on POI. Shooting environment determines where one positions themself, i.e. left/right, kneeling etc.

    Given shooting dynamics, there may even be times/scenarios in which a shot/s cannot be taken against a felon, regardless of what ammo is carried. As Doc wrote, first shot accuracy (and I add, while moving) is paramount.

    Like you, I prefer 14" to 18" of penetration that also yields large crush cavities..

    Nice reference, :thumbsup:
