Wound Ballistics

Vista Outdoor — Speer® and Federal® — pioneered the use of Wound Ballistic Workshops as a service to police departments nationwide. Utilizing the rigorous FBI Ammunition Testing Protocol, firearms training officers are able to test ammunition side-by-side in order to make informed decisions on the duty ammunition their department will carry.


All testing is hands-on by the officers and allows them to document the entire process from start to finish. All necessary equipment is provided at no cost to the hosting agency – another sign of Vista Outdoor's continued commitment to the law enforcement community and the public it serves.


Testing is completed in 10% ordnance gelatin, and consists of shots in bare gelatin, gelatin covered in FBI specification Heavy Clothing, steel, wallboard, plywood, and the toughest challenge of all- laminated automobile safety glass.
