What interests me is that in all the tests i've seen, the hat is on a table or something flat, not anything round like a head.

you should have put it on a melon, lol.
Looking good Hickok.
maybe if you used a hollow point or a wad cutter?
maybe a slower bullet would work better?
Two things. Cowboy hats are likely more well worn that the test hats. Mat the fibers together may provide more resistance than the test hat and it would therefor receive more of the bullet's energy before the bullet punched through. Second, cowboy hats are probably dirty. Add some dirt into the mesh of the fibers and you get even more resistance. Maybe not enough to get the frisbee effect, but certainly it will make a difference.
