Apparently they are making a "Trident" round that looks exactly like a Barnes TSX.

The rifle round still leaves me thinking proven designs are better. Way too much penetration out of the base which is still like an FMJ

I do enjoy slow motion video. Wonder how much he paid Skrillix for the soundtrack?

RIP also makes some wicked .45 ammunition too! I wonder what the ramifications might be in a court of law, when used for self-defense! Personally, I want whatever will put the bad guy down, quick and stop the threat.

I love my .45, but I also feel that the right 5.7 ammunition makes our pistol a good self- defense tool. A bit off topic, but Galco is coming out with a Miami Classic holster for this pistol, plus a two magazine holster. Two 30 round mags as back up would make me feel awful comfortable!

That round looks impressive, it would be more impressive it it dumped all of its energy in less than 16". It makes a terrible sd round.
