The use of large-charged perforating bullets after well perforation produces large impact loads, which can easily lead to early unsealing of packers, damage to testing instruments, stress failure of tubing strings, buckling deformation, and other adverse incidents. This study focuses on the safety of large-charged perforating bullets used in downhole tools. In addition, a dynamic model of downhole perforation tools with multi-shock absorber was designed, and ANSYS software was used to validate its accuracy. Perforation impact loading field experiments were developed, and the loading pressure was measured over time to obtain an even more accurate equation to calculate loading. Analysis of the effects of different numbers of shock absorbers on the dynamic characteristics of downhole tools was conducted, finding that increasing the number of shock absorbers from one to two significantly decreased the dynamic response amplitude of the downhole tools (displacement, axial force, and packer force). However, when the number was increased to three, the change in response amplitude was not significant. Based on the maximum acceleration of each section of the tubing string, the testing instrument is best installed at its upper end. As the number of shock absorbers is increased, the number of regions of the tubing string that undergo buckling deformation decreases. Increasing the number of shock absorbers helps prevent buckling deformation in the tubing string, and increases its service life.
