    Water Jug test

    Here are the results of my water jug test today. On the left is a .223 v max and on the right is a 45 acp hornady 185 gr hp xtp. The .223 was shot at 75 yards, the 45 at 10 yards........223 went through 3 water jugs, the 45 went through 2. found bullet in third..

    imagine what it would do to a person. I was kinda dissapointed in the .223. seems like it folded in instead of out......

    That .45 would make a hole going in, and a basement going out...
