Crossfire 140gr Black Max. It uses an all copper General bullet which... looks like it doesn't hold together too well at those speeds  :o

  Extra 180gr Gold Dots? Let me look and see if I have something to send.

I have them as components and I have enough factory ammo to fill a couple mags for my carry guns. I just didn't want to take any from my carry ammo.

 ;D WAHOO; welcome back to TNOUTDOORS9!!! 

Still think it's probably a variant of Ranger T.  Results with denim promising but 7" in bare gelatin.. :o
Think there are better alternatives available.

No doubt, he is doing a really, really good job.  I particularly appreciate his work with ammo by various well regarded manufactures fired from short barreled pistols (very popular right now).  The short barrels often yield very different results than full size barrels and the right choice in ammo is more important then ever if utilizing short barrel for self defense. 
However, would hope his interest in 380 ballistic gel tests diminishes sometime soon :P...

Mrgunsandgear focusing on gear a lot recently but his ammo tests have been quite informative too (and like TNoutdoors9 he is a 10mm fan).

  Yea. A true 10mm tester is hard to come by! I have thought about buying my own Clear Gel block, mold and roaster to do them. It's a $400 investment  :o

   I think this might be the first time I can remember TN doing no Denim. Maybe he is watching 410's tests?

If you decide to conduct your own gel tests, please consider using real gelatin if you have the refrigerator space. While the Clear Ballistics product looks cool and is generally consistent with real gelatin, it is not the standard and it appears that higher velocities produce results that are less consistent with real gelatin. Real gelatin also costs less initially. You can reuse the clear gel more times than gelatin, but with proper care, you can make the gelatin last through quite a few uses, too.

If you decide to do gelatin tests, hit me up so I can run you through all my current procedures and the little tricks that I've learned. In any case, it would be great to have another (terminal) ballistic tester out there and either type of gel would be a great addition to the outstanding exterior ballistic data you post. Be well.

I am seriously looking for a prograde 140 barnes gel test. Brass catcher posted a seriously disappointing 155gr barnes corbon test, it shed 2 or 3 petals but it did penetrate pretty good.  He tests in 20% gel.

Beat me to it again, Intercooler. Thanks. Here's the other test from yesterday:



Mag360, I think Intercooler sent me a few Barnes loads. That might be one of them. Theoretically, Brassfetcher's 20% results should translate to 10% results by multiplying the penetration distance by two. I don't know why he still does 20%, though. Maybe because he gets better high speed footage with a shorter distance and he can zoom in closer. Those videos are a lot of fun to watch.
