Powerful pink ammo results

This is the photo of Tennmike presenting me with some pink ammo from Hornady:


I shot some today and was amazed by the excessive damage to and energy transfer to some water
filled milk jugs. The ammo tended to shoot low--- the revolver used is regulated for 158 gr and this 90 grain stuff is
billed at 1200 fps.

    If it shoots low then you're all set if they're riding Shetland ponies. :tooth: (Lewis Grizzard reference)

    Hide yer water jugs...NN has Pink Ammo that devastates them :guns::guns:


    I was watching some YouTube videos and the guy was testing older HP ammo and almost without exception not much of it expended much going through 4-layers of denim, all clogged up and penetrated pretty deep into ballistic gelatin.

    However, the new Critical/Self defense type stuff did very good because of the way it is designed to expand. I know most thugs don't wear 4 layers of denim like shootin through 4 pants legs ( 2 pairs front and back), but still heavy winter clothing can effect expansion of the old style ammo more than we might think.

    And God hep a bad guy if he is holding a water jug with Ned around ................:tooth:

    Shooting low? Did he shorten the barrel and forget to raise the front sight? :uhm:

    Bullet leaves the barrel faster in the recoil cycle and hits low because of shorter barrel dwell time. The 158s have a longer dwell time and hit the target higher.

    Well, what do you think they recommend for shooting out of pink guns.

    For pink guns you need light blue tipped bullets because they penetrate. (Think about it and it will come to you)
