After all the 'caliber wars' on here and on every single gun forum and for a bit of fun, I have decided to run some testing at our local range.
Always helps when we can open/close the range ourselves for such events.
Anyways, no date set, we are gathering the stores (lots of newspaper). We plan to run tests for penetration, wound channel size and bullet break-up, expansion and mass. Not hugely scientific, just apples to apples testing on wet newspaper. Obvioulsy we will also record load data and chrono.
Initially we will run for pistols and pistol cal rifles at our indoor range and then in spring we will repeat for rifles outside. At present we have every caliber from 22 up to 500SW available with a variety of bbl lengths, that should cover it. All of us reload, but we may run some factory loads as well.
Any advice welcome as we are in the prep stages, aiming for late Jan 2011 testing.
Yes I will post details on here.
