13 ply Baltic Birch faced with 26 guage galvanized sheet metal.
10mm barrier testing version 1

Out in the muddy, sloshy wild

50lbs of sand to hopefully trap the bullet

Four loads were tested:

165gr Golden Saber @ 1,343 fps
180gr PRVI JHP @ 1,214 fps
180gr Winchester JHP @ 1,240 fps
180gr Gold Dot @ 1,229 fps

All bullets were recovered about a foot into the sand.

Velocities are estimates taken from previous chrono sessions.
