If you want to simulate flesh, try a cardboard box stuffed with flat wet newspaprs, that was what we used to do to test test our bullets from our rifles and handguns. Of course this was only a simulation of flesh, not skin and bone, but it was alright poorboy ballistic gelatin, the results were quite comparable with results on game animals, try it out with some lead balls and lead filled nuts. if its a big box, tape it around lenthways and sideways once to keep it from falling apart.

I want to see what 3/8" lead will do also. I am thinking of buying some myself for hunting. I like the size of 3/8" for holding in the pouch.

Yeah=I gota make a trip to the city today and was gonna stop by a gunshop, try to get some 3/8 dia roundballs or there abouts, something around that size, not many shops around here sell roundballs, just sell ammo for attack rifles and machine guns, so the kids have somthing to play with in the parks, oh yeah lotta 9mm ammo too for the muggers, glad I don't live in the city.
