Leave it to archy to find this kinda stuff!
Yeah, but it's from 24 November- I should have caught it a LOT sooner. I guess I'll plead Thanksgiving season distraction, but let's hope I catch the next one while it's a little fresher.

I think this ammo was featured on a recent edition of "Modern Marvels" on the History Channel, where the topic was (to my delight), "Bullets". This guy was doing a demo on these uncooked fifteen-pound hams with a rifle round -- I think it was .308.
First, IIRC, he fired a standard bullet (dunno if it was FMJ, HP or what) into the first ham from about 10 yards, and it made the standard small entry hole and larger exit hole. Then he shot the second with one of these new rounds, and blew it to shreds.
I remember my initial reaction being, "Holy sh*t!!".
