Science project requests?
« on: December 31, 2017, 04:32:03 PM »
For this years science fair we are testing bullet penetration and cavitation. As you can see I have already made a significant investment in to this.

If any of you gents would like to mail me a couple rounds you would like tested, send me a PM. Gelatin will be melted down and reformed between each round. Only doing 9mm. I will need the specs on whatever rounds you send obviously.

It might be easier if you tell us what the breakdown of the 9mm you already have on hand to test; that way you aren't getting the multiple offerings of the same round.
So, Bobby...being the calculating trained warrior NCO that you are.  Take the appropriate action, Execute!

As if you don't have an assortment of 9mm on hand, I shall declare shenangians upon such a decree from thee.

wow. 


Brings perspective to when the mythbusters mold human analogs out of that stuff.  They use multiple 5 gallon buckets...

It?s re-usable. Just cut it in to chunks and cook it at 270 until the bubbles all disappear.

There are also recipes on the internet for making it with Knox gelatin
