    The Python is a .357/.38 while the Anaconda is a .44 magnum which will also shoot the .44 special. "NO", the bullets do not explode the way you are thinking.........................

    The .44 special has a shorter case as does the .38 special vs the .357 mag.

    The words "exploding bullets" and "special bullets" cover a wide range of things. Exploding bullets smaller than 20mm don't make much sense because they're not very powerful. If they're mixed in with solid bullets in a machine gun, they don't weigh the same or have the same trajectory and might miss the target.

    There are a lot of different special bullets like armor piercing, tracer and incendiary, but for normal purposes in handguns like the Python and Anaconda, special bullets would be hollow points. They have a cavity, a hole, in the nose that makes them flatten out and expand in diameter when they hit a flesh and blood target. Expanding increases the shock effect.

    The idea is to put down the target and stop the threat with fewer shots. Hollow points are actually less lethal than solid bullets for two reasons: 1. They go in but don't come out, meaning fewer holes and less external bleeding, and 2. their greater effectiveness means fewer bullets are needed to do the job, and fewer bullets means less bleeding and internal damage.

    "Ice" bullets are James Bond Fiction stuff. Cryogenically frozen bullets exploding on impact? Give me a break. If it can hold up to the forces it must endure during firing, it will not "explode" on impact with a body.

    This guy is in Turkey. He has limited English skills and is exposed to all sorts of BS through hollywood and the mass media. Let's not fill his mind with more BS.

    complete myth

    there are no ice bullets. how would it be a secret assassination with the assassin lugging around a cryo tank the size of a back pack pulling out "frozen" bullets loading his gun then secretly shooting a target??

    lead doesnt change its structure based on cold. steel or iron will but they dont work well and even frozen will work no different than a normal temp bullet on soft targets.

    want proof go watch the ice bullet episode of myth busters. they did a pretty decent episode on that james bond bs.

    LOL! I just caught the "not a bird". :D There is also "Wild Turkey" an affordable and tasty liquor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Turkey_(bourbon)



    I really enjoy target shooting my Ruger GP100, a .357 magnum revolver that will also shoot the less powerful .38 special ammunition. It is the same caliber as the Python pistol. If you have an opportunity to shoot a revolver in .357 magnum, i recommend you try it out for fun.

    Perhaps the person who was telling you of "exploding bullets" meant to say "expanding bullets"? As others have said, the hollow-point bullets are designed to expand on contact with a semi-liquid target/meat.

    thats the hype from the manufacturer. the truth is they are not "exploding" bullets they have no chemical explosive. they are pre-fragmented bullets that fully split into four seperate pieces on impact. they are still available for sale today

    Ammo To Go .22Lr Devastator (6 Rounds) - DV22

    actual explosive tipped ammunition is illegal for civilian purchase without a class 3 tax for each round.

    they are only useful during the jodie foster rut season. to get her to mate with you, you have to shoot reagan with them. thats why since reagan died no one has successfully mated with jodie foster.

    It's all good partner, we just want you to get an accurate understanding of what types of projectiles are actually used in the modern day world of shooting.
