    NRA Gun Gear of the Week: NovX Ammunition

    Someone mentioned this in another thread so I looked it up. Impressive stuff. Breaks the liquid sound barrier. The cavities they show in the clay are impressive. Might try some of this stuff.

    Since I'm too lazy to look it up, how fast does sound travel in liquid?

    Roughly; 4.3 times as fast as in air.

    The article says the projectile spins at 120,000 RPM and ejects material around 3800 - 4,000 fps. Sounds brutal, but all the videos I see are them shooting into clay blocks, not calibrated gel blocks, so I wonder how well it really performs. Are clay blocks the new test medium to see wound damage channels?

    Since the human body is made up a large per cent of water, it could end a gun fight fast. I have been reading the ads in my catalogs.I don,t doubt anything advertised. I am slow to jump at new inventions till I hear from someone who has tried it.
