I would like to introduce myself, my name is Ryan and while I joined this forum last year I don’t believe I have ever posted. I found you by means of a current member that has helped me ID some ammo in the past. My interests include bullet casting and reloading as well as specialty ammunition and its effects. When I say specialty ammunition I mean anything that is not off the shelf such as AP, API, Incendiary, HEI, specifically old stuff. While I would imagine most people here are collectors my interest is in obtaining samples and shooting them to see their effects. Secondary to that I also have made some youtube videos documenting some of these “tests” in the past. I do typically like to save one intact round, when possible, for my collection.
I realize that shooting collectible ammo may be taboo but I hope that I am welcome here. The reason I am here is because my past videos have not met my desired level of technical and educational content. I am hoping for assistance from the experts here in identifying ammo and projectiles so that I can accurately depict them prior to demonstrating their effects. This is something that I take seriously and I have spent significant money on acquiring ammo from collectors, shows, and other sources. I have also recently invested in a high speed video camera to increase the quality of my videos.
Is this something that I can request your assistance with? If so then I would like to post up some photos and specifications of a few projectiles to get started.
