Paradoxically, the slower the bullet, the farther it is useful in water. This makes sense when you think about the physics involved.All supersonic bullets (up to .50-caliber) disintegrated in less than 3 feet (90 cm) of water, but slower velocity bullets, like pistol rounds, need up to 8 feet (2.4 metres) of water to slow to non-lethal speeds. Shotgun slugs require even more depth (the exact depth couldn't be determined because their one test broke the rig). However, as most water-bound shots are fired from an angle, less actual depth is needed to create the necessary separation.
That's a pretty good pun!Rubb said:Yea it's a cool page and one of the reasons
I thought I was doing well with
the 88 gr. Remington Express load.
2pp blew that outta the water (pun intended)
with his wet pack test but it's much safer than
finding out the hard way. Rob
