“The whole energy transfer or energy dump, is a very 1980’s concept… In handgun calibers specifically, though, energy transfer or hydrostatic shock is not something that really is part of the terminal ballistic equation. The only thing we’re looking at is the permanent crush cavity caused by the bullet…Then why do manufacturers list it?(Ft.-lbs. of energy) Because, once again, people that don’t know what they’re talking about think it’s important.” – John Johnston
100 episodes, hooray!!!! We can’t thank you guys enough for letting us be on the air for any remote amount of time, let alone this long. Ballistic Radio wouldn’t be what it is without the fans. So, what better way to thank you guys by answering some more of your online questions. Oh, but that’s not all. We have a very special prize from SKD Tactical for the best question. And what are some of those questions that we answer? Well, we answer such questions as; should you test your carry ammo in ballistic gel/water? Is there any sort of special training that lefties should be doing? What are the pros and cons of altering your carry gun? What can we, as a shooting community, do to promote a positive image for the shooting community? And many more! Plus, we find out what the Minion uses to cure a fever.
