    A pointless caliber test without showing which kind of ammo he is using for each caliber. He could be using FMJ, JHP or UMC on different calibers and thus the results are different. Distance is also a key factor as mentioned by cardinalfan.

    Thank you Mr. Obvious. I didn't see it as a test, more like having fun.

    The title of the video is "Pumpkin Caliber test" and in the video the narrator says: "I'm about to do a caliber test on a pumpkin.". But I agree, it does look like fun to shoot at a pumpkin with a bunch of different calibers.

    The test was a success. It confirms that those four calibers will penetrate a pumpkin.

    I wouldn't lose any sleep over the labeling.
