Talking VIDEO - Balistic Gel Penetration World Record AR-10 super cavitating-ammo

New supercavitating AR-10 Ammo completely obliterates any previous balistic gel penetration test. Amazing video :-) also works for 200ft underwater shots :-) that gel penetration test looks bad ***!

It's an interesting demonstration but I'm not sure I see the practical significance. Unless perhaps someone is trying to take out the brain of a giraffe with a Texas heart shot.

Would be interesting to load these up. Really interested to see how far these can reach.

Here are their mission scenarios

I think the number one problem will be the refraction.. so looking into or out of the water the bullet will go somewhere else than where one is aiming. And I am sure someone can adjust for that but that would require quite some calibration depending on distance in the air and water to target.

People spear fish and bowfish all the time, it's a thing that can be learned.

I'm not entirely certain any of those scenarios is common enough that a modern warfighter would carry such specialized ammo for 'just in case I have to shoot a torpedo with my M2 instead of some sort of above water vehicle like we've been doing since the dawn of naval warfare'. Also, even if I'm not a delta force sniperator who works on a submarine, I'm pretty certain the outer hull on a submarine is thicker than 2cm. Literally 30 seconds of googling shows that hull thickness is generally 2-3 inches and they are often more than 17 meters underwater... I suppose it'd be useful for guard stations next to the water where a small submersible might be used to deliver swimmers? But then there's that whole "what ammo do you load in the gun" problem necessitating that guard stations have dedicated "just in case a submersible filled with enemy swimmers shows up" gun.

But hey, maybe these things are more likely than I give them credit for?
