Terrible ballistic coefficient dart

At 880 fps this 176 grain dart should have gone much further into the target.

The T shirt acted like a drag racing parachute.

The positive is that the Trom-Boyn is shooting faster and one 174 grain dart was clocked at a blazing 1011 fps.

I agree on the poor penetration. I countersink nails in one shot.

It would be an interesting experiment to see how far you can shorten the t shirt material until stability is lost.
