Pabst + Hollow Point

Pabst + 0.22 LR hollow point = BOOSH

 

Now I smell like beer...

 

2nd try, the first one (non hollowpoint) wasn't very exciting.

    what's wrong with you people? PBR is a perfectly acceptable maintenance beer. in fact, it is the only maintenance beer.

    Nothing wrong with putting a bullet through a PBR. Especially if there wasn't any Iron City beer at hand.
  • Joe Plocki 8y

    Noooo! While it's not as good in a can as from a tap, it's still a PBR... :/ Awesome shot, though.

    Does the hollowpoint make that much of a difference? I was under the impression .22 hollowpoints don't do all that much in the way of expansion.

    I have shot water bottles with .357 practice rounds and THEN hollowpoints ... that was one hell of a difference.

    You sure the difference wasn't high vs. low velocity rounds?
  • Jasper Nance 7y

    ! You're damn right it makes a difference!

    .22 hollow points probably don't expand much per say, but they do add an enormous amount of drag and deformation energy. They flatten, curl back on themselves, and fragment. All of that energy has to go somewhere and it goes to slowing down the bullet and transferring it to the surrounding medium. Shooting with solid lead rifle bullets leaves a boring photograph in such a small caliber as the bullet is long gone by the time the subject has time to react. They're aerodynamic and slice right on through without losing much energy or creating a neat photograph. Using hollow points or other modified rounds helps to avoid this over penetration.

    I am an admin for a brand new group dedicated to pure high speed photography with flash exposures of 1/10000th of a second or faster. No snapshots of running

    dogs or rubbish like that. I don’t see any other groups which are just showing proper high speed photography.

    If you are interested then I would be very grateful if you would add this photo and any other high speed shots you have to the group below :O)

    Thanks
    Regards

    love this. i'm just starting out as a singer/songwriter and I have a PBR-related song on my very first CD (likely to be released around x-mas). i'm looking for artwork to add to it and would love to use this (full credits to you, of course!). let me know what you think.
  • Bradley Bowers 1y

    Wow. Any tips on how to recreate this?
