‘The Last Round You’ll Ever Need’: The Awesome New Bullet Billed as a ‘One-Shot Manstopper’
The Blaze ^ | 1/27/14 | Elizabeth Kreft

Posted on 01/27/2014 7:05:26 PM PST by smokingfrog

Gun owners who prefer a hollow point design to a full metal jacket might have found a new favorite.

G2 Research (G2R) released it’s new Radically Invasive Projectile (R.I.P.) this month, hoping to “take the civilian and law enforcement markets by storm, and truly become the last round you’ll ever need.”

G2R, based in Winder, Ga., highlights that the bullet points are manufactured with trocar angles — or simply put, edges with three angles reaching one point — to “penetrate the dermis layer more efficiently.”

The G2R website explains the R.I.P. acts like a full metal jacket when it impacts solid objects: “It is capable of going through barriers such as sheet rock, plywood, sheet metal or glass and still performs its original intent. The bullet shreds through solid objects and only then, expands its energy.”

Lead free too!

I guess this means a billion rounds of hollow point will be becoming surplus soon...

I don't know why and do not think these are that big of a deal. My pick of the litter is here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glaser_Safety_Slug

This bullet departs 100% of its energy into the target with no over penetration. It causes a huge wound channel that is unsurvivable in the chest area. It doesn't go through walls or people and kill those on the other side. My .40 is stoked with these in the first mag and then heavier hollow points in the next two mags.

Oh, good LORD!
I was researching this ammunition for the last 2 days.
Sounds feasible, but was wondering about the legal implications with it.

SHOT show was also talking about a tethered bullet, too.
A projectile that has four pieces connected by small tethers that turns the bullet into a kind of guillotine.

But, hey.
Whatever stops the threat. Right?

A small tungsten rod inserted into a drilled bullet wouldn’t be too hard to do, would it?

More silly gimmick bullets that are less effective, imo.

Primary effect is to stir up gun grabbers, which we don’t need.

Probably be “classified” as one of them evil cop killer bullets that can take down telephone poles when they are struck. Blow up engine blocks and semi trucks.

Fragmenting bullets are nothing new, but these seem to have some decent penetration as well.

They did at one time but I'm not sure what they are using now. We did some tests with pigs when these came out. They do what they say they do. The wound channel is a mass of liquefied gunk. There is no tissue or organ left to fix. There is no way to stop the bleeding. They leave a big nasty wound and depart 100% of the bullets energy into whatever is shot with them. They coined a new term, unsurvivable torso wound.

================================================================== Sounds good until you stop and think abut what happens to the rounds that miss their target. To me they do not sound like the best set up for an urban setting. Collateral damage could be pretty bad.

"How about a Sabot round....that would send them packing."

Sabots also insulate the bullets from the rifling in the barrel. I love them but the cops hate them. There are no rifling marks on the fired bullets so they can not be associated with any one barrel or firearm.

I doubt it. Pieces are too light, as usual, imo.

Don’t trust their videos. Wait for independent tests.

Looks like Edward ScissorsHands type of round. I saw the ballistic gel tests a few days ago, and those pieces act like fleschettes from a special shotgun shell. What’s left of the copper round’s base is small compared to a .45cal 230gr HP, but the wound cavity damage is genuinely nasty. Other tsts:

They call it the R.I.P. round and with good reason. G2 Research has released a new ammo that is taking the market by storm and has gun owners all over the country trying to find where to pick some up.

As of now, the company is only releasing specifications for their 9mm round and they go a lil’ something like this:

* 16″ Penetration

* Up to 6″ diameter spread

* 96 gr projectile

* 2″ grouping at 25 yrds

* 1265 FPS / 490 Muzzle Energy

* 9 Separate Wound Channels

* Precision Machined

* Solid Copper / Lead Free

* Defeats all known barriers such as sheet metal, sheet rock, windshields, plywood, heavy winter clothing

Wouldn’t even need to be tungsten.

I would think a length of “drill rod” would work well too, and be much easier to acquire/machine.
