Brian Creamer: I think the DRT s&w .40 is 105 grain. Might be just a form of dyslexia on
the description, I've been known to do the same thing. I have a couple
boxes of this stuff but I never carry it. I usually roll with the
Winchester pdx1 180 grain or Hornady critical duty. . Anyone have any
thoughts on The Drt stuff.. seems pretty affective in gelatin tests on the
few videos I've found.
WDallynN: Wow... that's... nasty!
allenknap1: brass fetcher could you leave a small segment at the end of the video that
shows the permanent wound channel? if you end the video too soon all you
get to see is the temporary
wound channel. And permanent is all that counts in a pistol round yes?
thanks love your work.
tacamo21: @SergeantZippo if you're impressed by this check their .30 cal ammo.
ravissary79: Impressive test, but considering how this round fares in other tests using
10% gel and denim I'm forced to wonder if this bullet was designed
specifically to wow an audience looking at gel only and will fork over lots
of $ ignorantly.
racing1g: Wow, that is quite a cavity for a .40 S&W!
Migs4000: @AngeredKabar That's RBCD that has that ball in it.
Vernonu9: Like I say, the .40 is a fairly modern load - it was tested in the lab and
found to be effective before it was released on the market. Its not short
pjicleanair420: Not to sure about this round, especially when penetrating layers of clothing
Davidray73: looks like a good round over 10 inches of penatration and it was all ate
AngeredKabar: DRT rifle ammo is pretty much a fraud. It's just commercially available
varmint bullets. I think the pistol ammo has a what amounts to a super ball
m4gunner25: you mean .40 or this particular bullet?
DaOzMan0608: You must be OOOOOH SO STUPID if you think a 9mm is better/ more effective
than a .40 S&W!
bmister50: @m4gunner25...No not the .40 ... just this particular round.
Biggriz86: @highsierra agree'd, the .45 ACP is 150gr, the .40 S&W is 105 gr, although
this company does testing, so perhaps its something in the pipeline?
regardless, this seems to be a very effective round, not to expensive
smartguy104: HS! And I thought all fragmenting loads were crap. That thing tor all the
way through the block! I wish my local shops would carry those instead of
saltlife316: looks almost like the bullet tumbles in the block
MrMellofelow: i think its better than the .45 cal test .45 cal sucks its too damn slow
hellow533: The surface area of the impact is the point of the round. It craps energy
out all over the place.
flagpole974: whats happening with the two separate cavities?
darkwriter77 .: Still don't know what to make of these. Most frangible ammo is pistol
cartridge form doesn't have enough velocity to really take advantage of the
frangible projectile's potential - usually all expansion, no penetration -
but these actually seem to have some degree of good penetration to 'em.
Anyone know if they perform similarly in 9mm or other calibers?
The3rdID: @bmister50 You go tell that to that poor ballistic block's family.....
bmister50: I think this round is garbage...My opinion.
captainkaos131313: for a point of reference, how tall and how long is that gel block
iceman27406: @smartguy104 Federal 40S&W 165 Gr HST are bad ass too they don't frag but
they dump a huge amount of energy and damn near a hundred percent open rate
if you can find them. I lucked up and bought 100 rounds for 44 bucks the
F.B.I. uses them as well as a slew of other LEO Agencies.
BlueonGoldZ: I saw your other comment. I thought you meant the entire .40 family instead
of this particular bullet.
highsierra: I think there's a typo here. DRT doen't have a 150gr bullet in 40s&w. They
do have a 40s&w with a 105gr bullet.
