I don't get it.. Why would you want your self defense bullet to break apart and spread its energy out so much?

Gtk did ya check the video? The main projectile carries the energy. The frags just give more damage.

Don't figure it will be on the market long.....I fugure it will be outlawed and forced out of production like the Black Talon was.

It looks very interesting, but.......Its only 96 grains to start with, and after splitting off in that many pieces, i wouldn't think it wouldn't keep much mass for penetration.. Also, the "name" is a problem.. Could you imagine loading some up, then having to use it for a real self-defense scenario ? The laywers would eat that up: "Judge , the poor defenseless burglar was shot by a gun-crazed man using RIP bullets". :)

Having said that, I would still like to load some just to "see" if my guns would reliably feed them & just what they would do in the back yard .

While it is a very interesting concept, just load a Hornady HTP in your 9mm, 40S&W, 45ACP, or my newest friend the Remington 44 Mag..
