    I hope tnoutdoors9 tests this! I suspect FBI protocol testing is going to show it's a complete farce.

    That is especially funny since someone paid $400+ on it on a recent auction for these retarded things.

    $2.50 a round? For untested ammo? No thank you very much. Pass.

    I'd like to test some but hell will freeze over before I paid $50 for 20 rounds.

    My thoughts on this RIP ammo. I don't want 16" of penetration or whatever I read these things have. That's enough to go through a wall and hurt someone else. I prefer a low grain high expansion hollowpoint that will damage tissue and bone but not come out the other side or go through my apartment walls and kill innocent people. Not to mention these type of "scary looking" bullets only make it easier for gun haters to dislike us.

    Just carry one in your pocket and show it to the bad guy. He will immediately give up!

    That didn't take long. It's out of stock already.
     
  8. On the shelf is a good place for it. Not on my shelf of course but for those that want it and will pay that price for a gimmick round, more power to ya!

    Not worth it to me...but "untested"? Do you mean untested in your gun or untested at all?

    What do those things do to a bulletproof vest? I'm thinking if they penetrate them, it won't be long before they're made illegal for the average Joe to own.

    What could possibly make you think these silly things would penetrate body armor?

    You say this in jest, but in the UK, some would faint at the sight of a regular cartridge, with this they might faint dead away.

    My point was that the ammo has been tested. However there are a variety of tests on ammunition - e.g., independent tests at temperature, etc. There are also functional tests that people do with their own guns (always a good idea). Just wasn't sure what you meant by "untested". I was going to share the video of ballistic gel tests.

    I wonder if some legal arguments will be raised in the first case where someone uses this ammo in self defense.
