    say if you want to shoot a jug of water or into water to see how a hollow point expands how deep must the water be. I have a water trough outside thats around 2feet deep would that be deep enough where it wouldnt do all the way through the bottom of it??
    Good point :) Im pretty sure it may go right through the bottle.

    Perhaps some DIY ballistics gel would work ?

    3 to 5 1 gallon milk jugs have handled my 9MM and .40 tests as long as they were Hollow Points.

    I don't know what it takes to stop hard ball cause it has always zipped right through 7 or 8.

    You just might shoot through the bottom of your trough so save up some milk jugs.
