The SuperPenetrator is a new kind of projectile, developed by Dr. Norbert Hansen. Its special type of construction enables one of the best penetration of all projetiles. That’s why it’s perfect for big game hunting in Africa.

How projectiles penetrate tissue?

Normally full-metal round-nosed projectiles penetrate the tissue very straight. It doesn’t matter if the bullets hit hard substances or parts which contain water. Today’s literature often describes this fact faulty. Test on models can disprove these statements.

The straight penetration of the tissue is caused by the so called supercaviation. This means that the projectiles move within an own produced steam bubble. The high velocity of the bullet reduces the pressure within the aqueous tissue. Therefore the projectile produces a gas bubble around itself. This bubble assures that there is no pressure on the top of the bullet which could cause a rotation. That’s the reason why the projectile moves the same within the tissue and in the air. The penetration of hard materials like bones always produce straight shot channels.

Which projectile cause the highest penetration?

Scientific studies prove that lean and pointy bullets cause low penetration. On the contrary projectiles with a flat top have a high penetration index.

The supercaviation was first observed by a sowjet torpedo of a nuclear-submarine. Physists confirm, that the flat circular shaped disk on the top of the bullets cause the effect of supercaviation. Those caviation-disks have to be made out of a hard material and have to be very sharp-edged.

Characteristics of the SuperPenetrator

  • The SuperPenetrator causes the effect of supercaviation. The hard protruding caviationdisk on the nose of the projectile produce the straight penetration of the tissue.
  • The hard top and the shank of the projectile is connectid by a conical head with an angle of approximately 25 degrees.
  • The best rifle for the SuperPenetrator has a very short twist. The more stable the projetile leaves the barrel the better the caviation within the tissue. An unstable ballistic causes a low penetration.
  • Therefore the SuperPenetrator is the perfect projectile for hunting elephants in Africa.

Tests with and without these caviationdisks determine the stability of the different projectiles. Those studies show, that the stability of the bullet with a caviationdisk is way higher than for those without one. The bigger the disk, the higher the stability and therefore the penetration within aqueous targets. Allthough the penetration within hard materials shrinks the bigger the disks are.

All in all you can say that the SuperPenetrator is perfect for low penetrating projectiles. The SuperPenetrator isn’t limited for hunting big game like elephants or buffalos. It is also perfect for hunting smaller types of antilopes.

The attachment of the SuperPenetrator is most effective for big bullets. It cannot compensate the low penetration of small projectiles. The material shouldn’t be too soft. When hunting elephants the SuperPenetrator should be made out of a hard brass alloy to avoid a deformation.

Many test show that the SuperPenetrator causes the highest penetration, closely followed by flat top bullets. Conventional full-metal and round-nosed projectiles show distincly lower penetration.

Shoulder Stabilisation

The literature holds the shoulder stabilisation responsible for the stabilisation of the projectile within the tissue. Theoretically projectiles tilts because of the high pressure. When tilted the pressure gets bigger at the front edge and therefore it gets back into balance.

Behold of many reasons the shoulder stabilisation theoretically can’t exist. When a projectile hits a angular target the bullet would have to tilt. Furhtermore abnormalities within the tissue would also have to tilt the bullet.

Round-nosed projectiles should not have a shoulder stabilisation, because they don’t have any edges which could tilt. This type of projetile also build their own gas bublle which ensure the supercaviation.
