Default Centurion 12 ga Minibuck gelatin test

*Correction: Nobel not Centurion.

12 ga Nobel Minibuck #00 fired into calibrated gelatin from 18.5" bbl Mossberg 500A.

BB calibration: 586.7 fps, 3.7"

Impact velocity: 1,232 fps
Max penetration: 23.5"
Avg penetration 19"-20"

These are not the Aguila mini shells. Those would not function in Mossberg shotguns because the front of the shell would fall through the gap in the elevator. These Nobel mini shells are long enough to function properly, as you can see in the video. I can fit 6 of them in my normally 5 round magazine. The seventh cartridge makes it about 3/4 of the way in so a seven round tube might hold 9 rounds but I haven't had an opportunity to try. They appear to be loaded with 6 pellets. Recoil was very mild.

Keep up the good work!
“Somebody has to speak for these people. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this—they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.” Mal Reynolds Serenity/Firefly
