Radically invasive projectile (RIP bullets)
Anyone seen these suckers yet? Machined liked a fragmentation grenade. Look killy as shit!
Thoughts? A gimmick or just unnecessary?
I need to see more data and whatnot, but I like them so far. At least appearance wise. Waiting on the .45acp of course, as I think right now I only see 9mm.

Looks interesting but i will wait for independent testing and not footage from marketing.
You see the bullet didnt expand or it lost all the trokar tips shooting through the wood.
Having hard time believing a 96 grain projectile will penetrate 16" especially after is sheds half its weight."In the Vietnam War they figured out that it took 50,000 rounds to take down 1 enemy soldier but with a sniper it only took 1.3 rounds. Thats $23,000 versus $0.17. The moral of that story is don't be our enemy" - Larry The Cable Guy

Cool video. They had this stuff before. I think a company called Triton made it. But it only broke in 3 pieces like the .22lr Quik-Shok that CCI currently produces. I never tried it though. I went with the Hi-Vel .45 in 165 grains they made. That was impressive...
I know Mag-Safe brings out the doubters but open your mind to this:
I shot some 25 acp Magsafe thru a crono and into some heavy plastic jugs full of water recently. Out of a Taurus PT-25 I got readings of 1875 and 1940 fps and the 22 grain bullet pellets easily went 12 inches, severely denting the back of the second jug with a 6 inch spread pattern. And the recoil was non existent. Even to 25 auto standards...
I don't think I would ever carry that round but it is food for thought.

They said in their promo that the rounds are cnc machined. That translates to $$$$ for each round I'm assuming as cnc takes time. Not to mention they are solid copper.
I think it's going to be a way overpriced gimmick unless it's on par with existing personal defense rounds.

I could not get the website to load but how is this different from a Varmint Grenade? Is it just a pistol caliber version?

Obviously a gimmick. I wonder how well it feeds. (Probably not very.)
