DRT Elite Series .223 Ammo Vs Windshield/Concrete/Gel/Meat/Wood

Andrew of GY6 Vids is at it again. After his video of the DRT .308win Terminal Shock Ammo, Andrew received comments and requests to do it again this time with .223 and shooting it at different barriers before hitting ballistics gelatin. Like the previous video about the .308 ammo, he reuses the same ballistics gelatin for a number of shots and that makes me wonder if the gel block is compromised by the previous shots.

Regardless of the structural integrity of the ballistics gelatin, the DRT .223 Elite Series ammo performed well.

    This doesn’t look nearly as nasty as Lehigh Controlled Chaos. Plus, these 79-grainers have less muzzle energy than Mk 262.

  • It is my understanding that DRT uses the compressed powdered metal core designs developed by Harold F. Beal, who was formerly affiliated with Powell River Laboratories (PRL). Basically, if the projectile is heavy for the caliber, it is probably using a powdered tungsten core. If the projectile is light for the caliber, it is probably using a powdered copper core.

    this is what qvc would be like if they sold guns
