Video: Stone vs. Steel: Arrowhead Penetration Test

I only have a minute, but I just saw this and I thought it was cool.

I found this video at WideOpenSpaces. In it, Billy Berger, a primitive bow enthusiast, tests the penetration effectiveness of stone versus steel arrowheads. Turns out, they are every bit as effective as steel when shot into a freshly killed deer.

Apparently, there are some states that do not allow hunting with stone heads. As a primitive hunting enthusiast Mr. Berger wants to change this. The video was meant to provide support to his case.

(note from the 4:30 mark: The shooter is an idiot. No way I would shoot with a dog that close downrange. The test remains valid however.)

    It would be interesting to see the results of tests comparing the effectiveness of stone vs. steel arrowheads against various types of armor, i.e. leather, chain mail, plate.
