    G2R R.I.P. Ammo, Thoughts?

    Cause zombie ammo wasn't enough. Thoughts on this?

    Damn! I'd love to try this stuff out in a 12 gauge slug, and .45 ACP sometime.

    I'd like a box for collecting purposes. I guess they're kinda cool.

    Didn't Aguila make I.D bullets that were "smart" and pre-fragmented? Isn't there a badass shotgun round that's got a silicone core that retains weight yet is supposed to be really powerful?

    Just use solidly performing self defense rounds (Gold Dot, Hornady etc) and you won't be explaining why you're using Super-deadly-bone-exploding-brain-shredding-organ-boiling bullets of pure lethality to a grand jury.

    I immediately see a potential problem of fragments exiting a target with enough force to cause possible unintentional damage to bystanders.

    That being said... I still wouldn't mind a few boxes of different calibers of that stuff... Exotic rounds are fun

    G, you have some valid points to consider if using these.

    Don't laugh at it too much.
    With the last primary lead smelter shut down now in the US we will be seeing more solid copper bullets. Only recycling lead smelters left in US. It's going to be the way of the future.
    .380 APC is on the list, just in time for the G42.

    Except that copper bullets are nothing new.

    I've got a couple boxes of these things:

    copperBulletPic2.jpg
    And I've had 'em for years.

    It's not the metal content of the bullet that's questionable... it's the marketing.

    Personally I'd like to see how it performs when encountering actual muscle, bone and organs.. as in shoot a few hogs*(that died of natural causes) and do an autopsy.

    Sure, but one with a Krull cutter will get banned faster than Black Talons.

    I wonder if they'll add a fleck of silver for the werewolf problems in some parts of the country.

    Ha. Another "never been heard of" company marketing a "supertydupertymakesgosplodey" magic bullet, with zero independent testing. And it looks really, really mean.

    I'm withholding judgment until they've been tested by a valid source.

    Seems boutique-ish to me. A liberal DA would have a field day painting you as a Rambo wannabe just itching to kill with ammo with a name like that. Why not just give it a more modest name like Carbon does and actually market it as such?

    Similar th the military flachette rounds for the m203 that were banned. Watching the video it looks very effective. I'm womdering how they will feed in most handguns though.

    Seems promising. I'm not one to worry about what a prosecutor might say of the type of weapon or ammo I use. I'd rather risk going to prison than not have the very best equipment available for dealing with those that would do me harm.

    Just like 22many said, I am curious how these will feed through pocket pistols. I can't wait to see what the 380 will be capable of. They may finally make that [the .380] a caliber worth carrying. Still, there's no way in hell I'll spend money on something like this till it is independently reviewed as 120mm mentioned.

    They are actually starting with the 9mm exclusively. You're not the only one that has been confused about this.
