SlapShot Precision Home Defense Slugs

SlapShot Precision Home Defense slugs efficiently release energy upon impact. This test placed a level three bullet resistant panel in front of a 20% gel human analog. Also a wood dowel was embedded in the gel to see if enough energy would enter the gel to rupture the dowel. The dowel requires approximately 10,000 PSI to cause the material to rupture.

Using slow a slow motion camera we were able to capture the projectile at the moment of impact. The red crescent in the upper right quadrant is the projectile striking the panel and putting off a flash of light.

The energy from the impact causes the gel to burst in a spherical pattern. The wood dowel can be seen amidst the gel.

This is the front side of the level three panel. The hole is almost 3/4 of an inch in diameter.

This is the back side of the level three panel. Note how the energy passing through the panel melted the kevlar threads.

We melted the gel down to recover the slug fragments. This is all that was recovered.

This dowel was embedded in the gel and the pressure wave caused the dowel to rupture. The projectile did not impact the dowel, the pressure wave was strong enough to rupture the dowel. Material specifications for this particular dowel says that it takes 10,000 PSI to rupture the material as seen here.
