Does this round do away with the lead core?

Can you imagine what a 12 Ga round like this would do to a person.
Yikes, looks like it would cut a person in half....
Me Likely.

I think a ballistic vest will easily stop them as they would fragment quickly.

Rats, no plan to develop a 38 round. This new round is going to kill for sure. They are developing a shotgun round and I have a Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun but it’s heavy for me to use. I will get some of the rounds for the shotgun when they are available as there will likely be a man with me if the SHTF.

Yep.

One of those unintended consequences of letting the screeching green-weenies out of their cages.

Not a scrap of lead in it.

We never heard anything about the cartridges used either by Zimmerman or the retired cop in the theater that shot the text dude. Both were one shot kills with what I consider a small caliber. The bullets did the job.

Depending on where you live, you may not want to give a rabid anti-gun prosecutor an opening. If you’re in a different situation go for it.

Years ago I reloaded some 12ga rounds with cut copper wire about 1/8th in diameter, the amount of damage they did was spooky.

Its just a fragmenting bullet.

Will it do the damage of a Glasser Saftey slug?

What will the prosecuting attorney have to say about you using a personal defence round named “RIP”?

"I think a ballistic vest will easily stop them as they would fragment quickly"

They're awfully sharp. Looks like they penetrate well, then decelerate.

A flack vest is filled with fiberglass strands that catch the sharp irregular shapes to protect the wearer. The so called cop killer bullets were hard with a Teflon coating that would help penetrate.

That would be good for perspective marking. No one buys more ammo than LEOs and LEOs don't like rounds that go through their vests.

In close quarter combat like room clearing you don't want a round that can go through dry wall and your partners vest who is clearing the next room.

or like myself....I reload ALL my own rounds.

I have been told it is not a good idea to reload defense rounds....some bottom feeder will start calling it ‘killer rounds’. as if my .45ACP FMJ rounds wont make someone room temperature...

only the cylindrical part of the bullet which is only visible in the case in the picture above can engage the rifling to cause spin. the ogive or conical part of the bullet would never touch the rifling hence never impart spin...

I laughed at the part about the teeth “ripping through” various materials, like a buzz saw. What a joke. Look up the velocity of the projectile, look at the twist rate of the barrel and calculate how many time the projectile spins in, say, one foot. And the energy delivered by the rotating mass. It’s pathetically little.

Hint: The S&W .40 twist rate is 1-16” and the standard 9mm is 1-10”.

Complete nonsense. Many years ago some manufacturers experimented with steel bullets to increase penetration. The hard steel would wear out barrels much faster than softer copper or lead, so the bullets were coated with Teflon to prevent barrel damage. The MSM called these "cop-killer bullets"; the denser material may have been better at penetrating body armor but the Teflon didn't have a thing to do with it.
