    Default Bullet performance data base

    a post earlier about the peregrine bullets popping out the skin backwards has got me thinking. This could be a fun way of proving theories, or just seeing results. seeing is believing. I'm always interested (and i'm sure a lot of you are as well) in seeing what difference velocity makes or bullet construction or this or that.... so why not start up a little data base with results.

    Please post all your pictures and results found with the following information :

    1 ) caliber
    2 ) bullet make model and type and weight before and retention
    3 ) velocity
    4 ) Distance shot
    5 ) Animal Shot

    3) 2700ft/s
    4) 130m
