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.
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.
