There is a bullet shown a couple of times that has a base with a conical point, at about 45 degrees or so. Anyone recognize that bullet? Not a boattail, but an actual point.

That's one of them weird German bullets. Can't remember the name.
Looked like they were shooting aluminum, cerrosafe, or solder for the metal.

not much to be learned from this vid

Although interesting it was not possible to know what bullet was penetrating what material untill near the end where lead doesn't do good against steel. The best bit was the explosive wounding effect in what I assume was ballistic gellatine.

Try reading my post in Hunting stories. SubJect stopping power, I have set up a formula to try and take explosive wounding into account.

Actual cavitation

I thought, from the username, we would see some cavitation, but that's just impact. ;) But if you liked that video you'll like this one more. Lasts about 10 minutes and starting in the middle it has a bunch of actual cavitation shots into gelatin.

These are all made by Kurzzeitmesstechnik, the German company that manufactures the PVM-21 chronographs sold by NECO.

At close range, a 308 hunting bullet of most any variety will penetrate 3/8 plate steel easily. The holes look almost like they were die cut. My brother had made a spinner target for 22's out of 3/8 plate stainless. At 50 yds 308 ballistic silver tips zipped right through. Brother was not happy, but he did a filet weld on it good as new.

I was shooting 150 gr XLT's (MV 2750) at an 30 degree angle 1/2" plate at 100 yds and they nearly went through. My father thought it was an adequate back stop . In front of the plate is 1.5 inches of treated plywood.

I believe the metal they were shooting was probably just plain old steel plate.

Now if I could get a hold of some 1" aluminum plate, that might be exciting.
