A new 9mm round for the FBI that matches the ballistics of a 45
In addressing the 9mm Takeover led by the internet, Dave Spaulding says he talked to someone at the FBI:
Is it true the FBI has found a 9mm cartridge that “matches the wound ballistics of the .45”? My friend told me they are “very encouraged” by the load they are currently testing in 9mm, but all he would tell me is it is a non-traditional bullet weight and configuration traveling at a non-traditional velocity in order to achieve this performance.
Interesting. Though they’re not the far off in terms of ballistics in the way people try to measure that stuff.
Of course, Dave also said in the linked piece: over half of what is printed on the internet is complete and utter bullshit.
So, maybe it’s some of the R.I.P. ammo I’ve been reading about?
