DYNAMIC SHOCK INDEX / BALLISTICS

FK BRNO has developed and patented the DSI ,an alternative computational system for measuring the efficacy of handgun cartridges. This methods measures the probability of instant incapacitation when compared to other calibres. The development was based extensive field testing and recent and historic war casualty data. It is calculated as follows:


Dynamic Shock Index [DSI] = Meplat Diameter x impact velocity – (1500-impact velocity) x sectional density

The following are examples of how some powerful versions of popular ammunition calibres score using muzzle velocity for illustrative purposes (as opposed to impact velocity) in comparison with the 7.5 FK:

CARTRIDGE MAKE MEPLAT V/fps SD DSI
7.5 FK F9 FKB 0.236 1920 0.160 72.5
44 MAG 240 gr JHP XT 0.255 1280 0.185 50
7.5 FK F5/S95 FKB 0.157 2000 0.150 47.1
