I saw in another thread where tahqua had posted a pic of an FBI ballistics gel test with various handgun cartridges.  I didn't want to hijack that thread, but I did want to ask if anyone had a similar pic that included a .357 magnum.  I believe the one posted included the Sig.  Thanks in advance.

I would be interested in that as well.
Do a google on cadaver tests I found some interesting things there.
