In Quantitative Ammunition Selection, Charles Schwartz presents
an accessible mathematical model that allows armed professionals
and lawfully-armed citizens to evaluate the terminal ballistic
preformance of self-defense ammunition using water as a valid
ballistic test medium. Based upon a modified fluid dynamics
equation that correlates highly (r=+0.94) to more than 700 points
of manufacturer-and laboratory-test data, the quantitative model
allows the armed professional to generate ballistic test results
equivalent to those obtaines in calibrated 10 percent ordnance
gelatin. Using data generated from water test, the quantitative
model accurately predicts the permanent wound cavity volume and
mass, terminal penetration depth, and exit velocity of handgun
projectiles as these phenomena would occur in calibrated 10 percent
ordnance gelatin and soft tissue.
A retired law enforcement professional, Schwartz provides a
concise explanation of the relevant principles of mechanics, fluid
dynamics, and thermodynamics pertaining to the model and its
The quantitative model is clearly presented with illustrated
computational examples that provide guidance to the armed
professional in every aspect of the model's application.
