Roberthurz: In your opinion how large a factor is hydrostatic shock on shutting down the central nervous system in a living target? I have witnessed massive blood shock in deer and coyotes from fast moving bullets that fragmented inside the body of the animal. Many of the animals muscle and nervous system convulsions were very dramatic when they were struck. This leads me to wonder if these faster lighter bullets could have the same reaction in a defensive gun battle with a human being. What do you think?

MegaGevehr: @hugo2x Actually, they'll go through walls glass etc just as well as FMJ's. They are only to prevent ricochets. They will frag out when they hit a hard surface like asphalt. They were also designed to decrease the risk of injury in shoot houses when nailing things like steel plate.

Austin Griffin: I personally believe in velocity and this bullet has it for sure. Explosion on soft tissue impact is great as I will not hit innocent bystanders and its suppose to keep form through barriers.... I think I'm in love with this ammo... Those who disagree need to read up on physics

alogusz: @backwoods223 Per DRT's website: "DRT lead-free projectile is a revolutionary round. The bullet breaks apart on contact with a solid surface. Our round can be fired by law enforcement officers without any fear of ricochet or pass through, or fear of injury or death to innocent bystanders from ricochet or pass through. "

andreleger2001: We had no feed issues with this ammo.

andreleger2001: @Roberthurz I think penetration is important to hit vitals. I also think there is something to the speed thing. A .357 Mag round KO's fast. Thus, we are back to the age old argument of slow heavy vs. light fast. The pendulum is now in the heavy side with penetration being king at the moment. This being said, there is a reason the .357 Mag has a reputation for being a fight stopper. I don't think the argument will ever be settled. (FYI I carry a .357 Mag most of the time)

Blk05titan26: too light of a bullett....115gr is the min.

bigboss686: @12GaugeLosAngeles So is that what all the posers such as yourself are doing this year, or are you trying to start a new trend all by yourself?

Daniel Casher: They feed great in my Glock 19, of course everything does. They also feel "soft shooting" especially for a fast cartridge. Also, they are very accurate.

Daniel Casher: I think one or two center mass hits would end the confrontation. If you hit the breastbone, the round will go right through and explode on the other side. Instant death. Just my opinion. I EDC these in my Glock 19 with complete confidence. They are also light to carry and soft on the recoil.

darkwriter77 .: So far, the only practical uses I've seen for frangible ammo are close-range metal plate shooting, splattering fruit, and blowing up small animals like prairie dogs. But for self-defense ... I dunno. DRT uses a slightly different design, sort of a compromise between other frangible bullet designs and a standard JHP, but it neither expands nor penetrates with outstanding ability or consistency. At least DRT ammo's not insanely expensive from what I've seen online (cheap enough to test, anyway).

backwoods223: So what are the advantages of frangible vs a bonded hollow point?

Danny Chron: @alogusz I beg to differ. At 10 yards it would penetrate 5 and half inches of solid wood and go into the tree but on the soft stuff it did better than I expected.

Daniel Casher: I have fired these 9mm from my Glock 19 into pressure treated 2x4, drywall, and wallboard. They go through like a FMJ would. But if they hit a soft media, they explode and fragment and penetrate in pieces. So, if the bad guy is hiding behind a wall, you can shoot right through and hit him. If you hit him first, the bullet will cause big trauma, and not over penetrate. And you can shoot more than once. The best of both worlds. Bad ass ammo. One or two hits and lights out. Light carry, soft recoil

hugo2x: @backwoods223 frangible don't penetrate hard objects like walls and glass like reg hollows

bigboss686: @12GaugeLosAngeles A retarded response from a retarded man, although I suppose that shouldn't surprise me. Look little fella the point isn't whether or not 9mm is good(although ballistic evidence clearly demonstrates it is) the point is that your advice is absurd/ridiculous an your suggestions idiotic an juvenile Once again, if your hands are shaking It doesn't matter what you're shooting because you're not going to get hits, simple as that. BTW been to Thunder Ranch twice troll you=not smart

AdmiralGST: @LosAngelesWeedSmoker Like your name clears you of being a tool, made it even worse.

Edubbplate: I just bought some of these. Do they feed well? I know they're made for semi-auto handguns, but I'm think of my Beretta 92fs particularly.

jmkpns: Hornady XTP's are much better.

Bullittstable: There are two women on the box. Really??? This is right there with Extreme Shock. Impressive and attractive to people who don't know better. Great test though. Always informative. Keep them coming.

Roberthurz: Thanks for sharing... I think you are right. These frangible rounds could be very lethal.

pjicleanair420: arnt these frangibles generally marketed towards home defense and not so much carry?

tmitch965: i bet this stuff is nasty on tissue, but if one had to shoot through a barrier, lets say glass for instance, it probably wouldnt be ideal. a guess on my part.

smartguy104: Supposedly these offer similar barrier penetration comparable to traditional hollow points if I am not mistaken in addition to fragmenting in liquid medians. It would be interesting to fire these into two by fours, stumps, or drywall to see how deep they would go.

Edubbplate: Thanks. They're just too expensive to "test out" many of them.

andreleger2001: @smartguy104 I think a future test is in order on this one.

Daniel Casher: They'll go through a 2x4 or drywall like cutting soft butter. But when they hit something soft, they explode and fragment.

scsmia: great vid. thanks alex

jwash3rd: @pjicleanair420 Good point. I think these are designed not to hit somenone in the next room. The lack of penetration may prove ineffective in incapacitating a perp who is wired on crank or adrenaline. Important info to have when purchasing ammo, considering most burglars are drug addicts.

Jarrad Bowes: This ammo has been way to hyped up.

backwoods223: @alogusz ah ok. thanks

Derail07: This would be great home defense if you lived in a condo or apartment complex. You don’t want to kill your neighbors by shooting through the walls.

bigboss686: @12GaugeLosAngeles Yah yah an last week your therapist had to convince you that you weren't a Green Beret, the week before that it was probably a Navy seal, after all, you obviously keep the psych ward very busy what with them having to provide you with therapy, check up on you to make sure you're taking your meds, (although they seem to have dropped the ball the last few days) and various other things. Look little fella, it's not my fault you said something that was the apex of stupidity

bigboss686: @12GaugeLosAngeles Just to mock your silly statements 01, who would be called mall ninja by his Indian name :D I mean, could you have made a more poser argument? 9 mm best if your hands are shaking? L.M.A.O If your so frightened your hands are shaking you won't make hits with a 22, let alone a center fire of any kind, therefore your "advice" is a complete joke with a cherry on top of that joke being chest beating about you carrying a 45. honestly, your statement is borderline retarded

firefox8192: devistator a fragmentation grenade. terminal. a surgeon/coroner will be picking this stuff out of a perp for days. i don't know where to find this ammo, but , i want some.

pjicleanair420: @jwash3rd i would think this would be pretty ideal possibly for an air marshall, or anyone who doesnt want over penetration, and i agree with ya

LosAngelesWeedSmoker: Hey i'm 12GaugeLosAngeles... closed my account, i came off as a prick, ha ha. Both rounds are excellent. Peace~

Zegarac Robert: Shimano should angle stator (inner) magnetic poles with respect to rotor poles (outer) a little bit to minimize cogging, that way you have a smoother rotation without cogging, also if you have mismatched number of poles on stator and rotor results in less cogging 
weakknight: the map thingy is cool :) i want something similar now :P

Toluene: See the problem is they really don't cause a safety issue. I bought an 02 Tahoe and it had the same problem so I went and bought a nice set of easy outs (or whatever they were called) and got them out. It's hard to get them out because they have that thread locker on the bolts. They are a pain! GMC/Chevy aren't the only ones with this problem either. I had this problem with the wife's 06 Durango and my '98 Expedition. I'll do a video for removing these broken bolts when I get the time.
