Gimmicky Ammo

So, RIP Ammunition is a thing, complete with cool video of shooting stuff. Shooting at stuff is fun and all but doesn’t tell me much about the ammo, really. I can shoot a cinder block with cheap surplus 9mm FMJ and get the same cool video. Color me skeptical. I’ll stick with the Golden Sabers.

    They look like nothing but a feeding nightmare.

    Pass. I’ll stick with my Hornady Critical Defense and Speer Gold Dots.

    I too have a fondness for the Golden Saber.

    “16 inch penetration” of what? Calibrated ballistic gel? Hefty bag full of styrofoam peanuts? Box of fairy dust? Doesn’t say.

    “490 muzzle energy” 490 units of what? It ain’t foot pounds. 96 grain projectile at 1265 fps = 341 ft lbs.

    Intentionally dishonest hype and BS.

    This is a slap in the face to those earnest Californians trying to outlaw bullets by banning lead projectiles.

    All copper, indeed! I remember the voluntary withdrawal of Winchester Black Talon ammo, the deadly buzzsaw bullet of the 1980s. When it was repackaged as the Ranger, directed for sale first to Law Enforcement but amazingly enough for sale to anyone with a lot of money to spend on .357 Magnum or 9mm premium bullets, I guess this sort of “designed to impress the buyer, not the target” bullet was inevitable.

    This bullet is aimed right at the wallet of the ballistic illiterati, and it seems to be dead on target.

    “Can you explain to the jury why, if you supposedly only wanted to defend yourself, you were using ammunition branded as being super-destructive and especially fatal?”

    I’ll pass as a carry load, but maybe add a box for the collection. They can go right beside the zombie stuff and those pigs blood hollow points. May be a curiosity one day.

    I’d like to know how they got Clint Eastwood to narrate the video.

    At best, its just another kind of frangible bullet. No one I know in either the LEO or the R2KBA community carries frangible ammo. I’ve heard that Air Marshals carry frangibles, but I never met an Air Marshal.
