Lehigh Defense 305gr CF Automobile windshield and gelatin slow motion

Fired from Marlin 1895GBL lever action at 10 feet distance. We like this load because it still functioned as designed, expanding and fragmenting in the gelatin, after going through the windshield.

Maximum penetration depth = 21.4″ (20% gelatin is stronger than 10% gelatin)
Maximum temporary cavity = 9.9″

The core of the bullet traveled sideways after the fragmentation event .. an optimal balance of penetration and damage done for this bullet design.
