I am including two works by other researchers in this page. I have absolutely no connection with either.

The first is a fairly large .JPG file. It shows the comparative penetration and retained weight of 180 grain .308 bullets in wet phonebooks.

It is an interesting study, however, all phonebooks are not created equal, and all wet phonebooks are not the same wetness.

Best Bullet

The second, a large .PDF file, shows the comparative terminal performance of the 5.56mm FMJ bullet in military situations.

Again, this is an interesting study.
