    I want to build a box-o-truth and do some testing, and I want to develop a scope of what we are going to want to test. Once I get an idea of what we are going to test I'm going to build the box. At that point we are going to be looking for donations:

    Items we will need:

    - Sheetrock
    - 1 Gallon Water / Milk Jugs (Alot of them)
    - Ammo to Test / Money to buy Ammo to Test
    - Ideas

    I'm thinking of building it big enough to test alot of rifle rounds. Hell I might even be able to get a car door or windshield to test with also.

    A Chronograph would be very nice to have as well.
     


  2. Hell I've been saying for 30 years I'm going to mix up ballistic gelatin to shoot.

    Isn't there a copyright on The Box-O-Truth? If so I would like to propose that we call yours The Big Box O Bullshit Busting. Eh just a thought. :tongueout:

    How about The NOT NOT Box-O-Truth or The Not Box-O-Not-Truth. Any combination of double negatives would work. :happy0001:

    The idea is an homage, and we can call it something else.

    I am about to start loading the Belt Mountain Punch big game rounds for the 45-70. The claim is it will penetrate 13 inches of hickory and about 10 inches of wet phonebook and barley deform:happy0001:

    Be interesting to see if the round backs the claim.

    Then you are going to need 20 inches of wet phone book. :rofl: And the extremely big, extra long extra wide, box-o-truth! :happy0001:

    I might be able to hook you up with a door or windshield. I know I can get you a hood right now. Just gotta come get it, since it'd be a bit tough to transport on my motorcycle. :lolz:

    I'll keep my eyes open for a door or windshield.

    Car parts I'm not worried about.
