There's never any doubt about "where" when you're loose!MikeO said:Ya never know where this stuff will pop up? :lol:
I won't bother with any of the other comments I received, but there's a lot of crud at work here, and if you'd've ever bothered to develop any of those critical thinking skills that Charlie and I have encouraged you to work on over the past dozen years, there'd be a lot less of these jack jobs in a paper sack you so dearly love to toss onto an Internet forum like a flaming blivet on someone's doorstep on Halloween!One shot does not prove anything. I shot a fox one time at 113 paces with a Model 27 .357 Magnum and a heavy cast Keith load. He was on the run and I dropped on the spot; the next day I shot another at 10 paces and if a guy with a 12 gauge hadn't been standing next to me, he would have been gone. And I shot the 2nd one straight through the brisket.
Well done, Richard. I remarked to Dean the other day that the similarities between the Militec and RBCD stories are too strong to ignore.Richard Jefferies said:(Stolen from another forum....)
I wonder if it will work better if you put a drop of Miltec on it? :wink:
And I've been pondering that, developing the premise that in this Âge d'Internet, this is a potentially viable method of getting the word out about one's product.LIProgun said:…the similarities between the Militec and RBCD stories are too strong to ignore.
LOL at the first comment--and I'd say "Yes" to the second comment, with the exception of THIS august crowd.Tim Burke said:
The "tests" the Major is referencing somes from the 1 September 2004 Interim Report, Engineering Study ES-1A-9001, Soft Target Terminal Ballistics Evaluation Of The M855 5.56mm Projectile, from U. S. Army ARDEC, AETC. Ballistics gelatin tests of various cartridges conducted and the results published.The 5.56mm Le Mas (AKA: RBCD) ammunition "demonstrated inadequate penetration, small fracture diameter, and shorter fracture lengths at all tested ranges. It is noted, based upon their configuration, that these rounds would be very unlikely to pass the legal review necessary to allow usage by the U. S. Military."
This reminds me of the guy who was of the opinion that the vacuum thermos bottle was the greatest invention of all time.The frangible APLP ammo will bore through steel and other hard targets but will not pass through a human torso, an eight-inch-thick block of artist's clay or even several layers of drywall. Instead of passing through a body, it shatters, creating "untreatable wounds."
