    SPLAT! Pretty flowers!
    I'd like to see a .45-70 400-grain cast lead hit the steel. :)

    I cringe every time I see them run a finger across the splash on the plate.

    I've cut myself nice'n'good doing that with a sliver of lead stuck to the steel -- razor sharp.

    Interesting that most of their guns were really short barreled, so not the best illustration of high velocity impacts.
    There were a lot worse places than Phu Bai and they weren't all in Viet Nam.
