    Slow-mo cartridge. Surprised by the penetration! Interesting choice for testing. Thank you.

    It would hurt to be hit by one of those tumbling slugs.

    Still looks like no fun. They were never fast, but it probably lost a little stink over the years.
    It would be fun to locate or reproduce the mk3 reverse wadcutter thing they had going before the playground teachers intervened.

    Old style, heavy-for-caliber revolver bullet that yaws in a soft target medium.

    Reminds me, in a way, of the idea behind the soft, blunt-nosed all-lead 200gr .38SPL Super Police load.

    Might not have quite the velocity "push" and sufficient momentum to break through heavy bony structures. Yawing and being easily deflected within a mostly soft tissue medium might likely cause a nasty wound track, though.
