I read that. That still doesn't adequately answer my question whether it's a valid comparison or not. Wet natural bone behaves VERY differently than dry natural bone. Ever try to break a wet Thanksgiving wishbone?

My question remains, as I suspect that dry bone simulant would produce significantly different results from wet bone simulant, just as bullet expansion differs wildly when shooting into dry newspaper vs. soaked newspaper.

A total of two shots from the original poster doesn't adequately test the 135-gr. Speer bullet, or any bullet, for that matter. I think we both know that, especially given the wide range of both test results and a more limited number of shooting results with that bullet that show markedly different performance.
