    WTF? R.I.P Rounds from G2R

    I read some comments on this bullet and some think its a gimmick and others say its the real deal. There was also some conversation about its real penetration. Either way this is a bad little round and wouldnt mind getting some for testing.

    Description:
    The New Ammunition That Has Gun Owners Drooling - They call it the R.I.P. round and with good reason. G2 Research has released a new ammo that is taking the market by storm and has gun owners all over the country trying to find where to pick some up.

    As of now, the company is only releasing specifications for their 9mm round and they go a lilí something like this:

    * 16″ Penetration
    * Up to 6″ diameter spread
    * 96 gr projectile
    * 2″ grouping at 25 yrds
    * 1265 FPS / 490 Muzzle Energy
    * 9 Separate Wound Channels
    * Precision Machined
    * Solid Copper / Lead Free
    * Defeats all known barriers such as sheet metal, sheet rock, windshields, plywood, heavy winter clothing

    It'll end up like Black Talon ammo.

    Yep. I remember the Black Talon fiasco. The Feds banned them just based on the hype. Then when they were properly tested, they were rated no different than a regular HP. I'm sure the anti-gun mobs will jump on this new one.

    while the bullet looks really "bad ass"...it will never have a following other than with the tacticool gang. Simply put the looks will prevent it from having a following with LEOs, the ogive design screams feed-way jam, and there are already impressive JHPs on the market. In 9mm it is still hard to beat the track record of the Federal 9BP--115gr JHP. When the Blk Talon got bad press Winchester simply took off the blk coating and it is now their current JHP; sorry brand name escapes me.

    Nice PR though...
    Almost got me fired up. But then I read Gunsmitty's post.
    Makes sense, even though I wouldn't mind to run a box through my (new) CZ.
    The "hollow saw effect" statement made me lean back and think about (I work in Material Science and have a background and experience in Structural and Mechanical Engineering).



    Just in case:
    Where to Buy


    On or around February 1, 2014, the first 9MM R.I.P. will be available from:

    This reminds me of the excitement the a Taurus Judge can shoot 3 .410 buckshot pellets.

    That seems more an "Oh Fuck" strategy than tactical planning to me. I guess it would be handy if you were fumbling for your glasses on the nightstand and had to snap shoot in a dark house.
    I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna. I have sustained a continual Bombardment and cannonade for 24 hours and have not lost a man. The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken. I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, and our flag still waves proudly from the walls. I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism and everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch. The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily and will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible and die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor and that of his country. VICTORY or DEATH.
