Hydra-Shoking some jugs

URL=http://s925.photobucket.com/user/mongoslow/media/output_zpszhoauvoh.jpg.html][/URL]

Was out amusing myself and killed a few water jugs jut because. The ammo was some 135 grain Hydra-Shok,I think the one on the right may have hit some ice on its way to its stopping point in the 3rd jug, blew the first 2 all to pieces and looked awesome doing it. The one on the right made it into the 4 th jug amid its own aquatic explosions.
Both had jacket separation but this doesn't really bother me I figure if I do have to use it thats just more damage one way or the other. Now what did this accomplish or teach.... Nothing but it did make me smile

If ya want to see something really cool, put red food dye in your water jugs, then cap one off

How about the late Chris Kyle's self-defense shooting of two carjackers in a TX gas station?

He reportedly hit each thug twice in the chest with Hydrashoks from his 1911, as he aimed from barely under his armpit.
The Texas town blocked media access to the story for a while.

Which type of rounds were used on the jugs?
