How much velocity does a bullet have AFTER going through your wall? Part II

     The Proper Grip is at it again building and then destroying simulated walls for "science".  This will be the 2nd go around and a 3rd test involving 00 buck and 50 grain 9mm ammo at 2,000 feet per second is also coming soon.  If this is your first time reading this we are basically attempting to demonstrate what velocity various calibers and bullets retain after penetrating an interior wall.  The point of this is to dispel the "bullet X is safe if you miss" myth.   Plus it is a lot of fun and if you are a numbers nerd like me the results are interesting.

      Shooting at night (where legal) is awesome fun and something everyone who owns a gun for self defense should do.  Statistics show that the majority of self defense cases occur at night or in other low light environments.  Besides learning the proper use of weapon mounted and/or hand held lights there is something often overlooked...the muzzle flash levels of ammunition.  Many self defense rounds are made using low flash propellants however not all are created equal.  A blinding flash is the last variable you need to be adding to
