This is an attempt to measure the penetration of different weapons and make a rough comparison between them. This is obviously difficult as different weapons have different amounts of power and lose that power at different rates. To attain the results in the linked graphs, weapons were fired at the shoulder blades of the Moose, to see how far the projectiles penetrated. This was done at the Archery Addictions Range on animals that were broadside or close enough.
The y-axis numbers represent the depth:
1 = body
2 = shoulder blade
3 = shoulder blade + single lung
4 = shoulder blade + double lung
