The accuracy of the FS rounds really helped, but it still took 12 rounds at 25 yards to get the data for the 6 shown. I shot 16 FS at 50 yards, and I could only get 2 to register. I couldn't get the standard paint to register at all. The ball has to cross in about a 3" x 6" window on a break beam. A radar style might be better, I just wasn't sure how accurate the result would be.

these are exactly the problems we had when we tested paintballs at range. we've got a pair of Shooting Chrony's - very acurate - but at 125' tough to thread that ball through the second one.

We're going to set up and shoot for accuracy at 75 and 150 feet indoors and collect the data - we'll also try to replicate your results - but since you got exactly what we did on the paintballs - then I'm sure our FS results are going to look just the same as well.

Welcome to the forum - hope you don't mind me stealing your data over to this thread - it looks great. :)

It was very cool when you showed the depth of penetration for the FS round, but there was no such footage of the Paintball penetration. I would have liked to have seen that just to satisfy my curiosity.

Great Job fellas!

No problem. I wouldn't have posted it on the internet if I didn't want it getting around. I plan on shooting up the rest of my FS stash this weekend at our field's big game

What calibration methods to calibrate the consistency of the gelatin did you use?

The kit that I used comes with 2 lb bags of gelatin. Using a digital scale, I measured out exactly 20.0 lbs of final mix. That gives the 10% mix to water ratio. I wasn't able to verify using a BB gun because I didn't have one. If I did, it should have penetrated 8.5cm 0.85cm to be considered ballistics grade.

Ah they are like 45 bucks at wall mart a spring loaded or pump one will give the best accuracy it's also BB weight and velocity that conferms the standard. the BB velosity and penitration helps with data confemration

perma gel midway has it it's the latest balistics gel that the Mythbusters use
http://www.midwayusa...ctnumber=315783 (great for any one who wants to start out doing balistic testing)

All that being said LO Very nice work balistic geliton works fine for what

Mind if i Download and burn these to DVD to show to my local field to show them the head reff was asking for some indermendant non tiberious arms funded tests to conferm the saft of the rounds

That's some interesting stuff there. Never heard of that before. I'll have to watch some newer episodes of Mythbusters.

Go right ahead. Don't forget about the 2nd FS Safety Test as well.

Old thread bud. Check the other post dates. Don't worry about it, just remember it next time.
