There is no magic bullet out there. Unless they contain explosives or poison their potential wounding effects will be governed by their kinetic energy, frontal area and bullet design. Bullets designed to fragment, expand, tumble or penetrate are nothing new. They have all been around for decades.

Every couple of years you hear about some new "super bullet". Some, like the Black Talons, are actually pretty good, but none are ever revolutionary. We've basically known how bullets work for about 100 years now and there's not much you can do to them that hasn't already been done.

How many rounds are there that punch a tiny hole through a steel plate and then disintegrate when it hits flesh?
