    500 S&W Bullets from a SHOTGUN Experiment
    TAOFLEDERMAUS



    Published on Jan 8, 2018
    Tim Hamilton sent us some bullets for us to load up to see how they perform out of a rifled shotgun. These bullets were never designed for a 12ga shotgun and there is NO load-data available. It takes a LOT of experimentation to get the powder loads ideal for something like this. This proof-of-concept was successful enough to show these WILL work. (yes it is 500 S&W not .50 S&W)

    In this video we shoot the most expensive bullet in the world, a 2 oz. solid gold slug. As a bonus, we also shoot a solid silver slug too. This was a once in a lifetime experience and I hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it.

    XM42-M Flamethrower Range Review
    Jeremy S.



    Published on Jan 14, 2018
    Chris and I hit the range with the gen2 XM42-M Modular flamethrower from The Ion Productions Team. And why not?!?! A portable, battery-powered flame thrower that sends a stream of gasoline from its on-gun tank 30+ feet? Sign me up! They even offer a backpack tank for 3.5 minutes of constant fire. Crazy stuff.

    Best 9mm Ammo? Federal 9mm +P 124gr HST Gel Test
    TFB TV



    Published on Jan 15, 2018

    We have tested several 9mm defense loads from a 3.1" S&W Shield and none of them have done very well. Even the Federal 9mm 150gr HST that is specifically marketed for short barrel pistols had less than ideal performance. It's a difficult trick to design a bullet that can expand well and penetrate adequately while still being able to expand when fired through heavy clothing, and do all of that at the relatively low velocities produced by short barrel 9mm pistols. If you reduce weight, you can get higher velocity, which can improve expansion, but that reduced weight can result in shallower penetration too.

    So when we tested Federal 9mm +P 124gr HST, I was unsure of what to expect. To say that it's a well respected load in service pistol length barrels is a bit of an understatement. It is quite probably the best possible load and it's been very well documented. But given the track record of other 9mm in the short barrel, I was prepared for less than perfect results and I was pleasantly surprised.

    Recoil is, of course, a bit snappier than standard pressure 124gr 9mm, but it's by no means obnoxious. Velocity was decent for a 3.1" barrel.

    Velocities (fps):
    1,136
    1,127
    1,129
    1,145
    1,101
    Average: 1,127.60
    StdDev: 16.46
    Min: 1,101
    Max: 1,145
    Spread: 44

    In bare gel, the figures and appearance of the bullet and the wound track are all textbook. Everything is as near perfect as can be.

    Bare gel
    Penetration: 14.9", 16.0"
    Retained weight: 122.9gr, 123.9gr
    Max expansion: 0.638", 0.663"
    Min expansion: 0.414", 0.405"

    But that is the easy part. Many bullets can produce decent results in bare gel, even at short barrel velocities. The hard part is being able to do that in heavy clothing as well. In this case, the results were not quite perfect. But they were nevertheless very good. Penetration was a little deep and expansion was somewhat more moderate. But expansion did occur and it was both reliable and uniform. Bear in mind that this is also the IWBA four layers of denim standard, not the FBI heavy clothing. The latter is a bit easier to pass.

    Heavy clothing
    Penetration: 19.1", 19.4"
    Retained weight:123.8gr, 123.5gr
    Max expansion: 0.635", 0.675"
    Min expansion: 0.393", 0.386"

    I may sound as if I'm gushing a bit, but this is really the best set of results seen so far from a short barrel pistol. We won't be giving up by any means, but I did switch from Speer's short barrel 124gr Gold Dot to 124gr HST in my own Shield. It could be that +P 124gr Gold Dot does as well, but this +P 124gr HST definitely outperformed both the HST and Gold Dot short barrel loads.

    Double Mega Ball Round - Too powerful to be Legal?
    TAOFLEDERMAUS



    Published on Jan 16, 2018
    We test out the Double Mega Ball rounds in this video. Imagine the recoil of 2.25oz. of lead! Will the balls behave like a Newton's cradle where one ball travels faster than the other? Will the spread be too wide and miss everything? What would the velocity be? Let's find out.
