Explaining the physics of how a wax slug works and why it is able to do so much damage. We explain how a connection was made with granular impacts and how the impacts of wax slugs are actually granular impact -- in reverse. I wanted to explain how these improvised rounds differentiate from a normal bullet or solid lead slug. Some of you may be interested in the science behind these unique rounds. A little geeky and dry but I hope you enjoy it and understand the properties. - The "Box of Truth" How bullets react with sand http://theboxotruth.com/docs/bot7.htm - Granular Impacts study http://scifair.org/news/physics-news/...
-BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR OWN WAX SLUGS- --Safety Warning-- Please read. I read a posting at AR15.com about someone's shotgun blowing up from using wax slugs. There is a lot of speculation about the cause. The shotgun was a Maveric (the econo-line from Mossberg). Some say he may have shot a squib (the primer didn't ignite the powder, but caused a barrel obstruction) The user had modified the shell, replacing the wadding with one from a different brand of shell too. http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_6_1/3685... - Again, I stress, use these at your own caution.
