Excellent job, Josh!! You went to a lot of trouble to do a fine test. I'm impressed that you were able to find the bullet. Usually when they exit like this they keep going, but it must have used all it's energy and stopped. I don't think having the denim there made a difference.

Note your first jug blew it's cap and released pressure that way instead of the jug blowing apart the way they usually do.

Excellent pictures, but I'll have to look at the video later when I have time to download it with my super slow browser.

For some reason, the last pictures didn't show at first but then did second time I checked it.

Cheers,

og

Hey OG,



Thanks. Those tests wear me out mentally mostly because I'm too lazy to take notes in the field (actually I think it's kinda' dangerous messing with both firearms and a pen and paper) so I commit the important stuff to digital images and memory.



If you frame-by-frame the movie, there's one frame that shows me in full recoil. The spent shell is caught ejecting and the jugs are bursting. I may have to make wallpaper since I have the fullsize movie!



Regardless of how taxing this is, I really enjoy it.



Thanks again,



Josh <><

hi, Josh,

yes, doing a good test like that can be tiring for sure. I don't do many tests anymore, gettting too old. However, I just did one on the doubletap ammo and posted the results at the USRange site where I can post pictures direct from my harddrive. I have trouble with photobucket and can't even upload there without several tries. So I don't like to use it much.

But I will post a partial report on the doubletap 380 just so you have it.
