Shooting the 44 Special loaded with the 200 grain Speer GDHP into Clear Ballistics Gel from my Charter Arms Bulldog. This series is a long experiment testing powder coated cast lead hollow point bullets made from various alloys and fired at various velocities.

Great video thanks! Glad I don’t smoke. Have no use for a flying ash tray .😂😂 wonder if that is what Midway means when they say they have a smoking deal on bullets? 🤔 No I bet they are just trying to sell me more stuff. 🤭😂😂😂

Thanks, James – always good to see this kind of reliable bullet performance. Have a great day, Steve

Really the only good bullet is an accurate bullet if you can’t hit what your aiming at then what’s the point of having one that opens up to twice its size

I think they got progressively deeper because they were passing too close to previously disturbed gel bullet tracks. I think this load would average 11~12 inches in undisturbed fresh gel. It’s hard to beat the performance of a cast HP if one knows how to blend their bullet metals.
