    I'm using the standard 6"x6"x16" mold. I have no idea how much the weigh.

    That what everyone thought, so rather than guess I ran the test. In this case it appears they are different.

    Thank you for testing this! I have been waiting to see a good test between the two. Do you think there would be a bigger difference in the 9mm version?

    The website says 18 pounds for 6" x 6" x 16" block which gives it an average density of 0.865 grams/cubic centimeter. Seems kinda low to me.

    Ballisitic gel is s'posed to have a density of 1.04 +/- 0.02 grams/cubic centimeter.

    I know somebody in the industy and he talked to the head balistic guy from Hornady. He was told it was the same with different color tip and casing. No other changes. So the green must fly faster than the red.

    Has anyone shot these at night? I was reading that most PD amunition has flash suppressers I the powder. This might explain some of the cost and performance differences. Not sure but it might be a difference. I can't shoot in the dark anywhere close but I'm sure that someone can.
