Seems many do the water jug and wetpack shooting, so I thought I'd give it a try. Photo below shows my results.

Black Hills Ammo .40 S&W, 180gr JHP (XTP bullets)
Fired from XD40 4" at about 10 feet.

The water jug bullet expanded to about .63 - .64 inch diameter, seemed to be all there. It landed in the fourth jug. Wetpack shots were directly into the phone books, through two layers of denim and through four layer.s One of the rounds through four layers plugged up and did not expand at all. Two similar FMJ rounds are shown next to it, all three penetrated the same distance.

Yep, just about anything expands in water, why I do not like it for bullet testing. Wetpack done right is almost as good as gello but more easily repeatable & easier to use.
