Probably been done to death:
We all know that .22 subs love to ricochet and bounce and yet we all still seem to use them, it's the most used cartridge out there.
My question is though, how dangerous are these ricochets?
Some people are scared stiff by the zinging sound (me included) but others seem to thing that any ricocheting bullet will be losing velocity very quickly in it's deformed shape and that's what causes the sound. Being a scientist I can see their point of view but they still give me the heeby jeebies!
What are everyones thoughts on how dangerous they are?
Have any conclusive tests been done on them by somehow catching maybe with water and studying the deformed zingers? (yes that sounds stupid but anything is poss).
A very how long is a piece of string post but ground that you think is wet and soft still seems to be able to make them ping off. Just intrigued to hear everyones point of view.
