What bullets do in real life

How much do you really know about what bullets do when they hit their target? This video comes from Iraqveteran8888 and is absolutely worth the entire watch.

What bullets do in real life...Car Windshields, Drywall, Plywood and more..

I watched a few minutes of it, and shut it off. I've seen stuff like this over and over again since LEAA started testing loads after the Miami shooting.

At this point, I think the guys making videos just like to blow things up. YouTube is rife with "reports" like this. They glorify them as "destruction tests." They actually act surprised when sledge hammers break things...

Sure, the first time you see this stuff it probably is. Go to YouTube.

Guys drag out their firearms, swords, improvised equipment, etc. They show the whatever, load it, remark with something like, "Let's see what my tests show."

They touch off the devise, then zoom in to show *gasp* there's a hole!

Fascinating...

I just went to YouTube and entered "destruction tests." I pulled up thirty pages. Entering "ballistic gelatin" found twenty-eight pages.

I don't think research is being done, it just looks like slackers are bored.
