Blogs aren't reliable references. That said, they can occasionally point you to something reliable.

That video being said, I will have to agree with the comments. I will also add though; that the potential for this round to be an awesome self defense round is very noticeable. Sort of like what EA did with the 5.7 round. I think the major leap or flaw, as shown in the video, is the ability for the pre fragmented pieces to penetrate further. Which I must add is very possible in the near future, as it is a new round.

I just read a report on this round at work, no body armor penetration and disappointing ballistics.

It's not supposed to do body armor, it's meant for internal organ damage. Buffman's videos weren't very encouraging on that front either :(
