Thanks Tipoc, the only thing that really gets me when watching gel vids, whether its Tnoutdoors or brassfetcher etc (scubaoz has a lot although not as good) is that the results dont account for bone. Which is where my quandary comes into play.
10% ballistic gelatin is supposed to approximate the average density of human tissues including bone into one homogenous test media. By inserting bone into the gelatin block, you throw off the average and create a test media denser than that of human tissue. This does, of course, bring up one of the primary problems with ballistic gelatin in that unlike it, humans are not homogenous. Ballistic gelatin is, however, still the best test media that can be ethically and morally used.
