Blitzspeer: Fun video but ballistic gel reacts differently at different temperatures so
this could never be too accurate,ballistic gel of course can't be 98
degrees but at below 50 it will harden and not be like flesh etc etc.
drew chan: have you seen it shoot a squirrel? freaking hole that could fit a .50 bmg
Rocco o: man why cant they do that around my house!!! also awesome test, should have
said that the first time.
Rocco o: do i hear aerial acrobatics in the background?
Greenthumb Patriot: nice video i just picked mine up today. that thing really shook that gel
jay mercer: cut into it clown
Greenthumb Patriot: why dont you have a knife! !!
Greenthumb Patriot: i always have 2 lol a back up
jgt22250: I am intirested now to see the results at 100 yards rather than just 50
yards. probably 30% to 50% narrower wound cavity but 30% to 50% deeper
penitration would be my guess but just a guess is not very good science.
Joseph Barney: Ballistics gel Is very messy to make but when it gets cooler in the area so
the air temp matches I'll do a comparison of every .17HRM round I can find
in my area. A couple manufactures are re-packaged Hornady ammo so I will
not be comparing those.
EvairsoftProductions: Never stand in front of the shooter that much .... cool data though!
adrianm413: Why are you breathing like you're dying?
Joseph Barney: I lost It on my motorcycle. Fell off my pocket. I have another one now.
Everyone should have one.
chlela01: That round is devastating. I hunt everything from squirrels to turkeys with
it. I will be trying to take a hog with it in the future. Nice gel test.
vampire847: what barrel length and was it pistol/revolver or a rifle?
Joseph Barney: @ktktwix Oh yes it does. A 22lr with half the kinetic energy will pass
right through that ballistics gel block with a very tiny path left. The .17
seems to "Explode" on impact.
jgt22250: looks good enough for coyotes at that range in my opinion. never hunted
coyotes with a 17 hmr but I have finished off a few of them cought in steel
traps from distances ranging any where from 5 to as much as 40 yards all
heart/lung shots and all were dead any where between 5 and 30 seconds
Sshooter444: Is there an airshow going on nearby?
recon562001: Get a trip pod man! Major safety violation!!
Joseph Barney: yes. there's a wealthy man that lives in the area and lives to fly.
Joseph Barney: It's a rifle. A marlin 917V. I've given it a trigger job, a thumb-hole
stock, and a 24X scope. 22" heavy barrel bolt action.
Shooter12point7: This is a cool video. If you're taking requests any time soon, I'd like to
see CCI 20 grain FMJ, as well as 17 grain TNT Hollow Points in this same
scenario. It would be interesting to fire one of every available load into
a block or two of ballistic gel and see how they compare.
zitm2GeE: Wash your nail
Pongo1320: That round is a nasty little bastard.
Joseph Barney: The photographer was my fiance and she was crouched behind a dirt mound.
The .17HMR has never in my experience been capable of a ricochet because it
turns to dust. I wouldn't ever put her in a high risk situation. I
recognize that risk was present but risk is present every time a trigger is
pulled. I will be filming from a go-pro camera now though so no one will
have to be downrange ever again. I highly recommend go pro cameras.
Kyle Kelley: that little bullet really expends its energy fast doesnt it.
