I don't have that luxury I am afraid.

1) I am not that awesome.

2) There is a mobile home that the "Range Master" lives in on premises.

From the paper alien targets, they appear to work, I think with this thread idea some pumpkin/cantelope testing is order. Jeep or not.

Winchester Rangers. I believe they are the best SD ammo available and when they open up, they CARVE out a hole that can't possibly be filled with anything but blood.

While they are "LEO ONLY" I know they can be had thanks to the Interwebz. Or I can send you some, My Friend.

The LEO only thing is apparently a Winchester policy.

I got these on J.D.'s reccomendation, he is correct. These are apparently the infamous "Black Talons" without the black. And they WILL cut you up. I did the wet phonebook thing, little claws reliably pop out.

I shoot bottles of water and love blowing up jugs with tannerite!
Here is my gun range.

By mace you mean? Your man hammer?

I do believe the WInchester Ranger is one of the best, wound opening, bleed out rounds available.

I alternate them with 230 grain ball ammo in the winter, 1:1, just in case I need to punch through heavy clothing.

But rest assured. When a Winchester Ranger hits flesh and opens up, it tears through sh1t like a Honey Badger having a REALLY bad day.

I also handload 223 and 6.8 spc ballistic tip ammo mostly but love shoot new bullets, next on my list is Barnes TSX 110 gr for the 6.8.

This thread is for everyone to participate in.

This is the thought process...

Everyone used to rave about Glasers. The ultimate manstopper. Problem was, too expensive to test. If you can't test it, you can't trust your life to it.

My vision is to test everything currently available, and post results.

I'll need everyone on board for that, I don't possess every caliber.

You .22 guys, find a badass .22 round, kill a gourd, post pics.

I want an open debate on the legality, ethics, and expected outcome from using 1lb of tannerite on a squirrel.

I went out for more bullets, I get easily excited over reloading and shooting! I picked up the Barnes TTSX 270 cal 110 gr for my mini 6.8 at Cabela's!
