Penatrating rounds

These are simply thick nails cut in half,the points filed or grinded down to what ever you want and masking tape wound around the end to fit your barrel,try them because they rock.

Nice paper background, lol.

I imagine that these must tumble pretty bad after ~10 feet? They look nice though.

Well no actually, they work well for me.
Benny also tested these, he shot one at plywood and it punched a hole through and then punched a hole in his garage door as well, his mom told me she wasn't happy about it.

*I shot one at a cactis, it just missed and now I can't find it.........crap.

Those should tumble, since the weight is in the back. If you can shift the weight to the middle (center of gravity) it shouldn't tumble.

I use bolt cutters to cut the head of the nail off the back. I use my new maketa (spelling) bench grinder to sharpen the front,than my friend cal tapes them. There are +50 of them stuck in various trees by my house. depending on where you put the tape, These fly supprisingly true. But if you put the tape in the wrong place,they tumble,curve,and fall like crazy.

heres my penetrating round for 1.5 in. never got to test it though im always afraid it will hit the wood, go through and hit a house on the other side. by the way that is a tealite candle on the back, it fits perfectly in 1.5.

oh and my post above was me messin around with the image thing and accidently clicked submit instead of preview. it doesnt give me the option to delete anymore please delete it.

HOLY CRAP THAT LOOKS EVIL!!! That would most likely go through a piece of plywood.

WARNING: The 14.5x114mm APFSDS round is an anti-material munition. It can easily over-penetrate several armored soldiers. BE SURE OF WHAT IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR TARGET BEFORE FIRING.

Sound familiar to anybody?

ok that thing is scaring me. im guesing that it will tumble when you get around to shooting it though. if it does try to add a tail to it like a piece of dowel rod to stabilize it.
