    Gel is a tough mix at the normal 10%. To make a block large enough to suffice the needs of a shooter requires a pretty large freezer.

    I had the oppurtunity to witness ammo testing for the TX DPS. If you have a particular round in mind, I might have data on what it looked like out of a particular barrel. ie: .45, .357sig, 9mm, .40SW. Mostly out of Glocks and Sigs.

    Freezer? you don't need a freezer to make balistic gel! Just a fridge. Mark II you can simulate the effects of 10% balistic gel buy mixing up a very large batch of standard gelitan. You'll need to know how much penitration you are expecting and make a form about 50% larger than that. Mix Knox gelitan (or any other economy gel from the supermarket) at a rate of four times the amount the instructions say and you'll have relitivly the same consistancy of 10%.
