    Anybody ever seen or heard of this stuff? 77gr at over 2400fps and over 1000 ft lbs. Wondering what the projectile is.

    Will it hit anything more than 15 feet away?

    Looks like a waste of time, another idea bites the dust...on the other hand it might make a good snake round for those Pythons in southern Florida.

    Don't plan on ever having to shoot people but I WAS thinking more along the lines of a varmint killer. Can the bullets be had anywhere? The lightest .400 bullets that I have been able to find are 115gr.

    IIRC the RCBD was the guys that started the "blended metal" stuff a while back. turns out the projectiles were either a big lie or simple reloaded varmint rounds. the performance was just not there and it ended up in disgrace for the "inventors"

    in any event SUPER fast and SUPER light rarely meets the requirements for offensive/defensive/hunting ammo. this is no exception
