This Ballistics Test is to see the trauma a 45acp Hollow Point Round causes on a real heart with nothing prohibiting the round(Clothes & Bone). I use a whole hog heart, inside Homemade Ballistics Gel for this test.
Standard Testing uses 4 layers of Denim on the front of the ballistics gelatin. Denim is used to see if the hollow point round will be effected by material clogging the cavity of the hollow point, thus preventing expansion of the round. The PDX1 hollow point rounds however, are well known for continuous expansion even through denim and other material, so I didn't find it necessary to use any denim in this test. Also, Keep in mind that there is no bone to inhibit the hollow point either, because once again, I wanted to see the Direct Impact of the round on the heart. When a Hollow Point hits bone, it can cause many different results. This is the reason I left bone out.
The round I use in this test is the Winchester PDX1 Bonded Personal Protection Hollow Points.
