    For comparison sake, watch the video below from the same lab of the .45. I am really impressed with the impact of the .50. If you watch real close, the .50 impact actually lifts the ballistic gel off the base. The .45 does not even budge it.

    I would not have believed there to be a significant difference between the two. Hmm. Kind of a novalty until someone big chambers a pistol for it. Besides GC.

    Novelty? I don't know if I agree with that. Innovative, yes. Niche, maybe. But novelty? Not sure on that one. I could be wrong, but I would guess there would be some patent infringement issues if anyone else built a pistol in .50 GI. It is Alex's baby.....

    They are the same weight bullet. Is it the diameter or the velocity that makes the difference?

    Velocity makes the difference when you are talking about two projectiles of the same weight. Keep in mind, the .50 GI is also bigger diameter, so it is going to hit with a bit more impact force....especially when those pedals open up on that 230g CHP. It is a pretty impressive thing to look at in slow motion, for sure.

    Definitely true! I'd love to get my hands on a Model 3 GI.
