Curious if anyone knows of any well done comparative ballistic tests that have been done, with pistol ammo, which include bone?
It would seem that this would be a better representation of actual defensive shooting, where a bullet would need to go through hands/arms/ribs before getting to the softer tissues.
I'm thinking a testing protocol would be something like a jacket, a shirt, pork ribs, and then ballistics gel.
I did a search here, and used some google-fu, but other than some back-yard test videos, I didn't find much.
It would be interesting to see how different bullets within a given caliber perform in such a test, as well as comparing different calibers.
Of course, not all bones are the same, so maybe some kind of bone simulant could be used, to get less variability in the tests.
Any info out there?
