So what was proved or what was the tester trying to prove?

That a steel jacket lead core bullet can't be hammered through a steel plate? I think we know that. (That is not how AP bullets penetrate steel, anyway.)

And the burning powders? Smokeless powder, given reasonable storage, does not deteriiorate.

All right Jim ,velocity The heat factor miss , but at 1000 yards , if you try on hard steel the result is same , That just fun to play whit newton formula for energy , For the powder im just curious to see burning speed for my reload ... Im cannot know exactly year of the bullet, im make save because i dont want to take chance whit ammo build in wartime... :)Look the lag after impact at 1000 frame seconde i think is resilience factor ?

I fired a copper jacketed lead core bullet, c1938 8mm from a 1904 Portuguese Mauser, at a steel I beam (part of a tractor trailer chassis) from about 30 yards and it easily pierced the steel, leaving a melted crater on the opposite side. Not sure what the point is here...
