Cheapest ballistics gel alternate
 
What is the best and cheapest alternate that I could use to replicate ballistics gel, trying to stay under 20 dollars?

If I remember right, ballistics gel is just gelatin mixed with water, i.e. nonflavored jello. Don't quote me on this.

I have seen people use multiple milk jugs filled with water to test expansion properties of water if thats what you are trying to do. The body is like 70% water.

To have actual "official" ballistics gel, it has to be tested once made to make sure it is within some sort of limits that simulate flesh. I don't know what type of equipment is required for that.

Sorry if I just made you even more confused.
