    That's not a bad idea.

    I confess ignorance. Clear synthetic gel has several far more knowledgeable people than me noting that the FBI standards (i.e. 12" minimum) aren't relevant because it doesn't behave the same as the organic stuff the FBI uses. That much I understand .

    This is...both? Neither? The color happens to be clear but the material is the same standard organic compound used by the FBI et al? What are we actually looking at?

    the article states: "I mixed up one block of Vyse ballistics gel using the 10% FBI method and let it sit, in the fridge, for two days and it calibrated to 3.5 inches. Two shots in bare gel and two through heavy clothing covered gel with the Ruger LCP."

    the Vyse stuff is the same organic stuff the FBI uses.

    Today I chronographed and function-tested this load from G42 and LCP-II. Temp was 83 degrees and sunny; I used a Shooting Chrony F1 at 10' from the muzzle. These are 6 shot samples from each gun:

    G42
    High 943
    Low 918
    Avg 926
    ES 25
    SD 9

    LCP-II
    High 911
    Low 891
    Avg 903
    ES 20
    SD 8

    I used up 100 rounds of my initial stash in testing, 64 in the G42 and 36 in the LCP. I ran it at max speed, one-handed, limp-wristed, etc. There were no malfunctions (both of these pistols have already proven very reliable) and it was accurate in both. I will be buying more...

    Is anybody surprised by this????

    Look at what the projectile is doing in simulant--pretty predictable performance:

    I think DocGKR was referring to the profile of the expanded bullet looking like an FMJ wearing a tutu rather than the mushroom shape typically seen with hollow points.
