It looks like it will fragment. I need ammo that will breach barriers and go through a goblins clothing. Some idiot is not going to hide behind a light barrier with a leather coat on and hurt me or the people I love.

Mmmm, can their online commercial be believed? Says the thing weighs 92 grains, doesn't seem like much. Also looks flimsy. That will go through a cinder block, windshields, plywood & sheetrock?

If it is solid copper it will hold together better than jacketed lead.

Despite the nay-sayers and adverse opinions, the only way to know how this new ammo would work is to get some and try testing it yourself. It does look interesting, and I am certainly willing to do some testing, assuming I can find some a LOT LESS than the $214 they want on Gunbroker! Yikes!

Vids look interesting though.
Black Talon only went away by name. They stopped coating them in black and just use the same bullets in their SXT rounds, and Ranger line.

The Winchester bullets are still a decent design.

I am going to take the "Let's wait and see" approach. Anybody here remember "Black Rhino" ammo? No, not Black Talon. Big hoopla- a hit in a finger means instant death, shoots thru body armor and main battle tanks yada yada yada. Disappeared faster than doughnuts at a Weight Watchers meeting.

Now, there are a couple of hurdles. One being- this weighs HOW much? Travels HOW fast? and gets HOW much penetration? Sorry- that is a physics equation- and the equation does not balance.
