FNH may be playing around with powder again.

It would help if he had chronographed the shots.

He did. He got 203X out of them. About 70 fps or so slower than what we normally get, but he took the velocity at 10 yards.

Temperature, mixture, age and other factors can affect the toughness of ballistic Gel.

I'm no jello expert, but every jello video I've ever seen the block jumps all over the place from anything larger than a 22. That block of jello barely wiggled. Maybe something was up with it.

Something seems really odd with those results.

Possibly staged or the ballistic gelatin was comprised. I have always had pleasing results from this round.

Mrgunsngear is a straightforward and honest channel. I wouldn't imagine him staging anything, but who knows.

You think being duck taped to the bench might have had a little to do with that?

Nope, nothing to do with it. In fact, should have jumped even higher. :laugh:
