The purpose of the testing is to obtain fresh samples of rifling marks on bullets and firing pin impressions, extractor markings, etc. on the casings, but it's also kind of neat to see how the various rounds expand in a low-velocity water trap.
I've got the ability to test .22; .32 ACP; 9mm, .38 spl, .357 mag and .357 Sig; .40 S&W; .41 mag; and .45 ACP. There is usually a .44 mag that comes visiting and maybe even a 10mm, but I don't own either caliber and we'll be stuck with whatever ammo is supplied.
If you've got a favorite standard (non-exotic) factory load in one of those calibers, I'd be happy to shoot a couple of rounds into the tank and post some pics, as long as I don't have to special order the ammo.
Just let me know.
BTW - this testing has absolutely no scientific or sociological value other than: (1) it's fun to do :mrgreen: and (2) we get to see how the ammo performs under the listed conditions.
