It has to be. When the round hit it, there was a lot of smoke, and the charring was not there before it was hit. It's the only thing I can think of that caused it.

I would love to see what a hollow point would do to it.

Me too, but I'll let someone else have the fun on that one. I won't get a drive to test on again for a while.... I think.....

Nice pictures. I should do something similar sometime.
And the bullet didn't leave straight because it hit metal. (obviously) Metal is hard and deflects stuff. And you have to remember that gravity always pulls the pullet down, so it never actually hits straight. And then the ground you were shooting at probably wasn't 100% flat, the target might have been 30cm lower than the barrel of the rifle etc.

Lots of things that can explain the bullet path inside the hdd.

True mammikoura, but to change that fast isn't just gravity. Your right though, metal does defelect things.

Fisher, it was a 7mm-08. It's roughly the size of a .223
