30 minutes without a test of ballistic gel, but other than that your ability to kill paper at 15 feet is definitely increased. Now lets see simulated tissue at distance.

Ahig, so there are 3 tethered 70 grain projectiles that probably will not penetrate to depth because of tethering (the string will pull the projectiles back as they go in when the elastic limit is reached) and if a missed projectile "wraps back" you've got the angular momentum to contend with. With the recomended stacking, ot sounds like it will be needed to actually stop the threat. Personally, I'm not seeing this being practical. Neat idea, though.

My two-word summary for this ammo: clown shoes.

Anyone ever hear of bolo shot? It is essentially 2 pieces of shot with piano wire between it, like chain-shot for people. I've seen several recreation tests, all of them failures due to strings failing or the shot failing to spread. This reminded me of it and its many short comings.
