If he sloped the plate 45 degrees it probably would have been sufficient. But then it wouldn't make cool lead flowers.  ;D

Hmmmmm.....

I have a .177 Parrus, and my girlfriend is a professional framer.
Maybe I'll make her a bouquet and put her to work.....    😁

Site in my gun at 20 yards 5th shot penatrated 22 gauge soft metal. Found these flower pellets laying close by. Have.135 wire installed in this gun.

Interesting!
Few questions come to mind:
Pellet weight?
Was the steel plate supported rigidly or hanging?

MANY Years ago, with no real Chronos around, part of the gunsmithing art was knowing how to read the pellet splats. IIRC, some writer used to call it "splatology", LOL!

Keep us posted!

Thanks for the data. I assume it was a relatively light metal piece.

IMHE, that rifle is then producing between 850 and 900 fps with those pellets.
The center of the head had enough energy to recoil independently of the rest of the pellet and extruded itself into the rear side of the remains of the pellet.

At higher impact speeds the head would have disintegrated completely.

IF the plate had been rigidly supported, then the impact speeds measured by this method would need to be reduced by dividing between 1.2

Believe it or not, 50 years ago, rifle manufacturers used these methods to test the rifles. There were few and far between chronos.

;-)

Thanks, keep well and shoot straight!

My chrony results. Looked down the barrel after each shot just a tiny smoke ball down the barrel. I put this .135 spring in last year really donít know how many shots I have on it. Shoots pretty steady. Metal measured 1.15mm comes out 19 gauge mild metal.
