    These bullets create a fourteen inch spread from a .45 acp and twenty-four inches from a 12 gauge. I like the idea of having a finite spread from shot shells, but I prefer handguns to be more accurate. It is interesting.

    12 gauge shells are $6 a round! :eek:
    .45 cartridges are $10 a round! :eek: :eek:

    I wonder what the penetration is?

    Yet another answer in search of a question. Each lightweight projectile lacks sufficient mass to cause incapacitating wounds. The "hit" probability is even better with #8 shot, it just does not carry enough energy at range to stop the target.

    That must be why they only show examples of it striking paper targets.

    Sounds like these bullets almost guarantee that you'll hit the bad guys, the good guys, the walls, the ceiling and Aunt Bertha's quilt hanging on the wall. Think I'll pass but thanks for posting.

    why would you go to this less than effective round in a shotgun?? use OOBuck. its a proven manstopper.

    in a pistol this is frangible ammunition. do NOT use frangibles for defense

    Three wires, three weights on the end of the wire. Average MV and rate of twist for a 1911, that is spinning at just over 38,000 rpm.

    Gee, that has got to be putting a bit of strain on that connecting cord when that bullet segment hits the end of the cord. No rebound, huh?

    Wonder what happens if one of the 3 segments decides to snap the cord and keep going thataway? Say, the CH47 helicopter uses 3 blade rotors- and we even have some helicopter drivers here on FTF.

    Hey- fling-wing drivers! What happens if a Chinook sheds one rotor blade in flight? :rolleyes::eek::p

    BOY I AM IMPRESSED!:rolleyes:

    The ballistics would have to suck and penetration through leather or thick clothing??????????? And what about the section of the round or rounds in the video that does not hit the target? What about Aunt Maudie next door!
    Oh well I know most of us will run right out and get some of these! :p
    More crap someone is trying to make a buck with! *Miniature Bolos!:D03

    Wow, seams like a super fast way to reduce already underpowered hand guns even more, so if a 115grn 9mm pushing 1300 fps packing roughly 400lbs of energy that must mean that round packs 3 projectiles (124 grn total, I am being generous) with a divided weight or (roughly) 41 grns per perjectile moving 1200 fps ( again I am being generous) packs X amount of energy, I am no scientist so can someone tell me how much energy a almost flat thin 41 grn projectile packs?

    FOUR pieces. Three rotating around a center projectile.

    I tend to think in terms like this; I would not purchase "exotic" ammo to use for self defense. If, God forbid, I ever had to shoot someone I would not like to give the potential prosecutor "ammunition" to depict me as some kind of evil sadist. I load what the local police load for a reason.

    O ya, from the emphasis they put on the 3 equal projectile I figured the center to be some sort of polymer, but we will say 4 so 31 grns per projectile.

    357 double ball loads have been available for a very long time. 3 to 5 000 buck at 70 grains each in a 410 looks more impressive.

    131 ft lbs. About in the .22 LR category.

    But... It looks soooo cool hitting paper! :D

    The sad part is that it will still sell... It's got that "gimmick" angle so these guys will cash in.

    Yeah, and probably about 20 times as effective. I can fit 2 or 3 balls of buck in a .357 case and a light powder charge. And it would probably even penetrate! I have some stubby 145 gr. .458 bullets that I have been meaning to try tripled up in a 45-70.

    About as deadly, if you could somehow flatten out the bullet, and make it hit sideways....

    I think I would trust a shotgun loaded with rock salt more!

    If the ammo doesn't have LE in the product number I am probably not interested. I want ammo that is going to stop a bad guy, not provide temporary entertainment to the goblin as burns the village and rapes the women.

    Someone gave me some of the double ball 357 loads and they were marked LE. There is nothing light about the 357 load. The balls will hit about 1" apart with the 2nd ball being higher and slightly right. Velocity will depend on barrel length but it is not a light load. I will stick with the 125 or 158 grain loads though.
