Besides shooting an actual human or a pig carcass, the best way to determine the efficacy of a projectile -- like a bullet -- is with ballistic gel, which has almost identical density and viscosity to human muscle tissue. But how does it fare against extraordinary voltages? According to this experiment caught on video, the short answer is: not well.

Video: Some really cool things happen when FullMag decided to blow up ballistics gel with some blasting caps. First, when the blasting cap detonates, the gel basically erupts and explodes into this dancing substance. But it doesn't break! The flubber gel just expands wildly until it withstands the blow and then just traps the remnants of the blasting caps explosion inside. Pretty damn cool.
