Skip to comments.This is the last bullet you’ll ever need — watch and see the technology for yourself

The standard for anti-personnel bullets since time immemorial has always been the hollow point. It mushrooms out on impact, giving the bullet a much larger profile and stopping it inside the target. Unlike the full-metal jacket, which is designed to wound, it will more than likely not pass through what youre aiming at.
However, since we started using weapons, humans have never stuck with the If it aint broke, dont fix it philosophy and the bullet is not exempt. This newest anti-personnel round not only replaces the hollow point bullet, it also makes it look like a sissy.
Meet the RIP round from G2 Research. Not only does this bullet look scary, it does scary things. It was intended to be used for gun-toting women against would-be attackers, and its guaranteed to kill anyone dumb enough to assault anyone who has this in the chamber.
G2 calls it the last round you will ever need and describes its effects as radically invasive. As youll see in the video, the bullet doesnt just stay in one piece upon entering its target. The round uses its forward momentum to send the edges of the bullet ripping apart into your attacker. This not only puts a round into the target, it also sends shrapnel into various parts of the body as well, effectively destroying vital organs.

96 grains in what caliber?
Isn’t this pretty much a dum-dum of the type outlawed for international war around the turn of the 20th century as just too gross?
“At this time, G2 only has a 9mm version but plans to create various other calibers, including the 45 and shotgun slugs”
I believe that it is only available in 9mm.
Currently 9mm. They are working on others. Info is in article.
Probably another 9mm bullet.Over the years manufacturers have tried ever trick they could think of to improve the 9’s stopping power.
He thinks cops are not civilians.
Did they really call it the RIP? Did they not learn the lesson of the black talon? Should call it the equal opportunity huggie bear, that way the libs will will ignore it.
Very interesting tech.
The YouTube channel Military Arms Channel did several ballistic gel tests with this bullet. Looked quite impressive.
Ouch, this is gonna hurt.
How is there any real different from “Black Talon” (IIRC)rounds from a few years ago?
12 ga round, my number 2 steel shot will do much damage to an intruder
Still, you have to admit that the 9mm has come a long way. Most will still likely prefer a .40 or .45, but have a few extra thug plugs is hard to beat.
With ammo being expensive, I suppose a lot of people don’t mind paying a bit more for premium.
Yea, these would definitely be against Geneva
I still have half a case of 4 buck lead. Can’t shoot geese with them anymore...
Load these in a .358 Winchester or a 35 Whelen.How nasty would the wound channel be with the bullet at 3200fps?
That's OK, a lot of cops seem to think civilians are not citizens...
