    Hans anyone had any experience with Liberty Ammo? I aquired a box of their 9mm (USM49mm). THe info on the box says that these 50gr. HP rounds fly at 2000fp/s and rate energy at 450fpe. One web site lists them as
    (Link)

    I got two boxes with a 9mm this weekend and did try a mag of them to see how they cycled and they did well.
    Here's an overly dramatic vid form the makers

    I also found a vid about the Halo Point. Not sure if it's the same as the USM9mm though but they look the same.

    If anyone has and any experience with these rounds I'd be interested to hear about it. They seem pretty pricy so I'm not sure about it's value over performance. I just thought they sounded interesting.

    Yup, halo point it is. Prefragmented bullets, basically buck shot in a compound that dissolves when impact with liquid like surface such as flesh. Something like that. It's like CorBon and their Glaser Safety Slugs or the weaker les proven Magsafe "SWAT team rounds". The reduced weight of the bullet is how they achieve such high velocity.

    Personally I think they sacrifice too much to achieve the velocity. That's why I've chosen to go with Buffalo Bore +P recently. 115gr, 1400fps and 511ft/lb! Now that's a man stopper if placed right!

    The ones I have are called USM49mm but they look to be the same. At a 50 gran slug I do wonder about them being so light. But they where free so I might keep em around a while. The mag I shot actually grouped well but I swear the things feel like aluminum. I will say the weight in the gun is nice ut I"m not all that sure I like them.

    I still think about buying some just to see what they're like, but I haven't convinced myself to do so yet. Lol

    I son bought four 20 boxes of 9mm at the Tampa Gun Show the first of the year but I don't know if he has fired any. I believe it was less than a $25 a box. He uses my ammo when we go to the range:(

    I question the fact that they say that they were only made available to the military due to lethalality. Due to the fact that the military ,because of the Hague convention,will only use ball ammo.Now maybe in the Special forces but I'll leave that for you to research and decide.
