Anybody have ballistic gel tests at 100 yards?

    I see every .223 gel test, barrier gel, glass gel, wall gel test at 10 yards...... Can anybody do a 100 yard test? If you have done it please post me a link. I really like what the 55 gr FMJ does at close range, but will it make a .22 caliber ice pick hole at 100? BTW I keep the top 10 rounds 55 grain Federal Bonded Bear Claw.. Im sure i will never need to use them unless ZPAW or something like that. Just nice to know what will do the job.

    I think the fragmentation has to do with maintaining a certain velocity (which I can't remember) So say a 20'' AR/M16 will still fragment at 200yrds IIRC and the shorter barrels just reduces the fragmentation range.

    I would also like to see 100yrd gelatin tests, because it annoys me when they test it at nearly point blank range.

    Oh and have you made ballistic gelatin? Boy, that stuff sure stinks.

    I suppose an industrious handloader could just download their rounds to produce 100yd impact velocities at 10yds. Of course if you've got the means to do gel, you've probably got a 100yd setup at which to shoot it.
