In this instructable I will show you how to make Ballistics gel like the FBI and Mythbusters use. 
Ballistics gel is as dense as human flesh. You could go out and get a dead pig to test ballistics on or you could  use ballistics gel instead.

Step 1: Materials

- unflavored gelatin 
-measuring cups
-table spoon
-food coloring (optional)
-lavender essential oil (optional)


just wanted to say thank you for this...I made a sheet of it, put a flesh latex coating on it to help simulate skin, and subdermal fat to run a simulation lab for peri-mortal c-section for my ER residents...worked great!!!
Where do you teach?
Hi! Hey, quick question...how long can this gel sit out side of the fridge?? Hours, days???
i still am using the same ballistics gel for about a month all i need to do is re melt it and let it sit in the fridge overnight!
Hi. The longest I let it sit out for is about an hour in room temperature and it didn't lose its shape and it stayed the same consistency.
