    This is a fantastic video. Zee is doing some REALLY good work here. I get excited when I see Zee has posted a thread. It is always very informative. Good work Zee.

    And to think you made that shot with no face is really astounding! No wonder you keep cutting yourself.

    Straight behind the heart is the spine. That, and those guys were executed with full powered rifle bullets. They say they give one guy a blank round so their conscious can at least somewhat deny that they were responsible for someone's death, so that would make at least 11 rounds.

    11 rounds of 30-06/303 British/7.62x54 Russian/8mm Mauser aimed at centermass-- I would expect immediate death. Those rifle rounds are also going fast enough where hydrostatic shock becomes a big deal. The pistol rounds-- you don't get much of that.

    True. I never thought of that. Some weird things can happen though. Like the guy that was driving behind a car that launched a piece of 2 foot rebar into his head. Went through his forehead and out the back, penetrated his brain completely and he lived with minor impairment after surgery.

    In truth, it's my own curiosity and desire to gain knowledge that leads me to do these off the wall tests. I just document them as well. In case I screw up.

    So, everyone benefits.

    Bullet will pass right through. Nothing in there to slow it down.

    How fast away were you? Surprised you didn't clip the wire.

    I've been known to clip field fence with a 45 ACP. Dad wasn't too proud of that.

    Measured off 7 yards. I knew it was going to be a tight fit (4" squares) with the moving around hog, so I brought a gun I felt confidently accurate with.

    I meant how far, but you knew that. Stupid autocorrect.

    I asked dad what about the dead, goat killing coyote.. he said, "yeah but my fence..."

    You'd probably have to tell him or he wouldn't even know he'd been shot.

    Like others mentioned, I do not frequent the PD forum. And like the others, I hafta agree - this is likely the most educational thread I've read here. I showed this to my oldest (now 22 and carries religiously). Thanks. This is awesome.
