Browsing through my old "Handgun Stopping Power" (Marshall and Sanow) I found a load that intrigues me quite a bit. Obviously I don't think it is still made but if it was just think of the potential for "stopping power". It was loaded by PMC in .38 Spl and .44 Spl. Basically a hollow copper bullet, similar to the Barnes X except that there was no base to it, i.e. it was a flying copper tube. A gas check wad of some sort was used to allow the pressure to propel it from the barrel but then the wad fell out and the remaining projectile was a "tube". Now, expansion wasn't it's ace in the hole; it was the cutting power. Think about it: a normal, expanded bullet pushes and sometimes cuts it's way through tissue. This particular round totally detached tissue on it's way through. A .38 or .44 sized "rope", if you will, of detached tissue. An irreplaceable hole bored through the target. Basically uncontrolled bleeding. Maybe Double Tap or Buffalo Bore could resurrect this thing?
