    I don't see any real purpose for this kind of round but I still thought it was pretty cool:

    Interesting...I can think of a few advantageous purposes for this kind of ammo right off the bat...but that's just me! ;)

    great round if you got a wild soviet engine with rabies coming after ya. most engines in vehicles are surrounded by things like wheel wells hoods radiators batters ac systems alternators power steering pumps etc.

    while interesting not a valid demonstration of engine busting power

    12 gauge. Ddupleks makes some crazy rounds, new .410 slugs came out for the Judge not too long ago.

    First engine block are not that hard to shoot through. they are made of cast iron or now aluminum. The are surrounded by sheet metal and not much else.

    Now they the shoot through a Cat C15 from front to back through the pistols then I may be impressed.
