    Anybody ever get any ballistics gelatin? Has anyone ever made some?

    If you can buy it, where do you get it?

    YouTube user tnoutdoors9 uses SIM-TEST media for his ballistic tests. It gives pretty similar results to ballistic gelatin, it's cheaper, doesn't have to be kept at a certain temperature, and it's reusable.

    ^^^----- +1!

    I am also given to understand that standardized ballistics testing is now done using measured blocks of SIM-TEST with 4 layers of denim cloth across the target area. SIM-TEST also eliminates a lot of the inconsistency of results (due to ambient temperatures as well as formulation) with ballistics gel.

    Thanks guys. I checked out the SIM-TEST stuff. I like it but it is kinda spendy for me. However, it is re-usable so that's a plus.

    I tried to make some with 2 large paks of Jell-o plus 1 small pak of gelatin. It seemed to set up OK, but haven't had a chance to use it. I don't think it is as thick as the SIM-TEST stuff but it still may be fun to shoot at.

    I like trying to come up with different stuff to shoot at. Plastic Coke bottles filled to the brim with colored water are kinda fun, for one. Got any other ideas?
