An additional note on the. Modern chronograph technology is based on optical sensors used to determine the period of time a bullet takes to pass between two sensors. The smaller the bullet, the harder it is for the optical sensor to detect it, and the more necessary it is to get the bullet exactly over the sensor's field of vision. For most of the test we were confident that our results were accurate, and if you look at the raw data sheets you will see that we were able to usually get four or five 'good' readings out of six possible - three shots each over a pair of aligned chronographs. However, towards the end of the tests when the barrel was starting to get very short accuracy became an increasingly difficult proposition. At that point we switched to a more expensive Oehler brand chrono system, which uses twin chronographs to automatically calculate one reading. For the last measurements in the chop tests - when the barrel was only 2" - we were only able to obtain one or two readings for each type of ammo.

Due to the limited number of wall sections available, it made sense to start with the round that seemed likely to penetrate the least number of walls: The zippy, light, and thin-jacketed V-Max ammo. The hypothesis turned out to be correct: V-Max bullets started fragmenting within the first sheet of drywall and completely blew to pieces on their way out of the second sheet, leaving dramatic craters. Most of the rounds had fragmented by the time they reached the second wall. A couple roughly circular holes suggest that some of the rounds were more intact than others when they hit the second wall. My bet is that these rounds didn't fragment as much in the first wall because they were shot so close to preceding rounds that they passed through the craters in the rear of the wall.
