Hi Ray, I am intrigued by the effects of different types of ammo so as a hobby I do a lot of target shooting. When I have an interesting round I typically take video too. When something interesting enough happens I will research it then put together a youtube video to share the info. Looking back my early vids were pretty lame but I am getting better and I try to make them interesting and educational. This is why I am always here asking for information, to ensure accurate information in my videos. I don’t claim to be an expert, far from it… but i do enjoy it and I enjoy learning as I go.
Here is a recent video, a bit longer than most others but hopefully accurate and interesting enough to keep viewers attention. It features ordinary old 30 cal M2 AP.
Shortly thereafter I did a data gathering video which is I have not made public yet but I’ll put a private link to it here briefly so you can see what I’m trying to do.
Please keep in mind that I am an amateur and not claiming to be an expert. I’m just doing something that interests me and enjoying it very much. Unfortunately being a novice last year I acquired some ammo from a place that I now realize was selling non authentic, inaccurately described, resized, and reloaded ammo. But I’m making the best of it and still working my way through the video footage that resulted.
The photos shown above are low resolution frames from the video I am working on, and yes, I did chrono it. This is why I am trying to ID this projectile so I can tell viewers exactly what it was. Unfortunately I shot before I acquired a high speed video camera, it was shot with an ordinary Canon Rebel T1i with a telephoto lense.
I wish I could find a few of these in 7.62x54r.
This is very interesting, thank you. I have googled what you mentioned and stumbled across the ZR or ZaRa as well which seems similar and the dimensions bring it to 1.52" in length. What do you think about that, PZ vs ZR? Thank you sir.
