Sorry I missed this Mike. Most ballistic gellatin is made from Kind & Knox gelatin, I think it is their #250 and there is a precise formula and tempreture range but it can be done at home if you can shoot it relatively quickly or keep it cool.On 2001-04-14 10:13, mike357 wrote:
does anyone have a way to make ballistic gelatin?

Simpler and just as informative is to use newspaper (not phone books, magazines or other paper) and soak them for at least 24 and preferably 48 hours.
And after you finished, you can BBQ the target and have a snack :grin:On 2001-04-26 12:09, John Lawson wrote:
Where do you guys meet up with lethal threats from jello or Hearst newspapers?
If you want to REALLY see what your rounds will do, go to the meat market, buy some spare ribs and some liver and kidneys, wrap them in a sweat shirt and a leather jacket, head for the range, fire at 25 feet, first at the bundle directly, then at the bundle behind a piece of sheet metal such as found in a cardoor, and then back to the internet to look for a bullet that REALLY works in a real life shooting scenario.(I have never known a shooter not to express amazement at this "real life" simulation's results.)
