    So I'm doing an excel spreadsheet calculating Z scores for a computer class I'm taking, my professor said my data should be relavent to my major (Criminal Justice) so I decided to do hollow point performance. But while I was doing some research I noticed that when the gelatin is covered with denim the penetration is always deeper and I have no fucking clue as to why this is. Anyone got any incite?

    Hopefully I won't get expelled and sentenced to an insane asylum :noes:

    Here's one of my sources

  2. The denim can "clog" the hollowpoint and prevent it from opening fully, thus keeping a smaller diameter and penetrating deeper.

    it's one of the problems with hollowpoints, especially in urban environments. A bad design that clogs with material won't expand and in essence become a FMJ and over penetrate. It's even worse with winter clothing tests where jackets and multiple layers are involved.
    One of the reasons I use DPX now.
