bullets

Why not right?

Printed in PLA with a bullet weight of 13 gr.  It’s really too bad that a heavier plastic doesn’t exist… 13 gr is very light.

From the video description:

A total of 14 3D printed 9mm bullets were fired without any problems.  The bullets loaded with 1 grain of powder were subsonic and showed good accuracy potential.  The bullets loaded with 3.8 grains of powder went supersonic, but we did not test accuracy.  The recovered bullets show evidence of engaging the rifling.  The bullets also seem to have frangible properties, as they disintegrated when the impact was hard enough.

3D-Printed-BulletIt’s cool people are experimenting with stuff like this.  I can’t wait to see where we’ll be in 5 to 10 years.

The Ammo Channel takes a look:

Makes me wonder if the Hague convention specifies the FMJ’s have to be loaded forwards?  hahah

3:26 – HOLY… would NOT want to be hit with that.  It goes without saying that getting hit with regular .308 wouldn’t be on my “to do” list either.

Loading-Bullets-Backwards-AmmoNot until the end of the video do we see that the cases split and the primers appear to have enlarged.  Yea probably not ideal.

Just wait until the media gets a hold of “Backward assault bullets with 248% more killing power”.

Thoughts? Anyone ever do this with the same or different results?

Hmmm yea whatever bro.  Maybe for starters you should have took 30 seconds to research the thing you’re trying to vilify. For starters, your more guns = more danger thing has been proven wrong over and over… secondly I only am assuming those things flying in the air are bullets because they sure don’t look like bullets.  Full cartridges flying in the air?… heh nice.  Better people than him have done the same thing, but I’m still not giving anyone any passes.

Thoughts?

Youtuber ShootingTheBull410 does some gel tests:

hahah that guy trolls hard, I love it.  .22LR for the win!

My buddy Richard Ryan does some as well:

The slow motion footage was badass as usual.

If you missed the original R.I.P. Ammunition commercial check it out, it’s hilarious.

So much for the hype.  Thoughts?

Hold on to your tactical pants, you’re in for a wild ride:

0:26 – Glock with excessive speed holes cut into the slide.  That right there tells me that guy knows what he’s doing, and does NOT mess around.

0:31 – A little peak at some ballistic gel test… looks messy.  I’m holding my breath.

0:33 – OMG a Beretta 93R!  These guys just keep getting better.

0:37 – AHHHHH Glock 18!  So much want.

0:56 – Voiceover by YouTube trollfessional Mattv2099 or Dynamic Pie Concepts? hahah.

The stats for THE LAST ROUND YOU’LL EVER NEED (so they say).  G2 Research R.I.P. 9mm:

  • 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

Some random points in there for sure.  2″ grouping at 25 yards for instance… wtf?  Is that supposed to impress me?  Isn’t that mainly shooter dependent?  I also love the DEFEATS ALL KNOWN BARRIERS;  Like everything known to man up to this point in time.  They aren’t saying there are barriers this CAN’T defeat, but they want to be clear that every barrier they know exists… R.I.P. Ammunition will RIP A NEW ONE.

Those ballistic gel tests looked like a mess.  I’m looking forward to seeing some 3rd party tests of this ammunition.  If I had to pick a bullet not to get shot by, it would be this one.  How long until this is on every news station in the world?  I want all my high capacity assault clips to be full of R.I.P. Ammunition from now on.  Maybe we can work out a sponsorship deal?  I scratch your back, you scratch mine type of thing.

2:58 – I see they have plans for a bunch more calibers planned.  I’m disappointed to see .50 BMG and 20mm aren’t on the list.

RIP-AmmunitionYou can check out more info and pictures over at the G2 Research website.  You know they are fancy when you see the CSS the cursor: crosshair; move.  LOL so rookie.  I bet the main guy who knows nothing about websites was like “I NEED THE CURSOR TO BE A CROSSHAIR” to the programmer.  He probably politely advised against it, and then was like fine whatever if that’s what you really want.

Thoughts?  Elaborate trolling, or real product?  The YouTube comments are pure gold, make sure to click through.

Remember when that kid wrote biden about chocolate shooting guns?

Glad to see Iraqveteran8888 took up my challenge.  hahah “Shotcolate”… nice. 

I don’t know about any of you guys, but I’m not taking a chocolate slug to the face.  Damn IV8888 really stepped up their camera!  That slow motion is sick too.

Joe-Biden-Chocolate-Shooting-Guns-LetterThe country being safer and happier?  Nah… doesn’t look like it Joe.  People would still die.  What did he expect?  People gleefully taking chocolate to the face and being like *nom nom nom* MOAAAARRRRR!
