Water Denim Test CCI .22 LR 5 Inch Barrel

I wanted to do a test with a .22 LR 5 Inch barrel .I wanted to compare the difference between water jugs and denim covered water jugs. Handgun was an H&R revolver.





Here i am holding the gun...





Here is the gun and a couple of bare water jugs...





Here is the shot on the bare water jugs. It went through and through. The expansion is unknown but is suspected due to the water splashing on me!!!!





Here is the 4- layer denim covered jug.





As you can see no expansion was evident...





...But as you can it exited with enough force to flatten itself against a piece of metal.



I'm new to all of this, so this was my first test. I enjoyed it and I hope you did as well!!!!!!!!



April

Hello. Thanks for the report and pictures. The denim thingy is a tough barrier for many if not most expanding bullets, sort of a worst case scenario but worth keeping in mind as well.



Best.

Hello April, Welcome Aboard & Thanks for the review.



Shooting stuff is Fun, and one can learn a lot from it as well. One of my favorite things to shoot is junk cars.



Thanks Again & Take Care.

Aha! By Jove! I think I recognize that test setup. By chance did Josh help you set that up??



(Josh doesn't always tell us everything he is up to!!)
