seanc Posted February 4, 2014 Share Posted February 4, 2014 (edited) Overall, I believe my little 95-gr. zingers take steel just as well as the heavy bullets loaded to the same P.F. I hear about this idea that heavy bullets make things fall over better than fast bullets and it bothers me, but kinetic energy is not the same thing as momentum, so maybe it makes sense, i need to sit and do some math to see if the "generally accepted" belief about this has any basis in physics or is just range science... edit...took 5 minutes and no math needed, impulse(momentum applied over time) and more properly elastic collisions. I haven't done physics in a long time. I would theorize anyways your 95g zingers do the job in part because they are fully jacketed, yes? So they hold together vs destroying themselves, thereby transferring momentum into the steel to take it down.
