Reseach company has just introduced their new line of
R.I.P. ammo. Radically Invasive Projectile is suppose
to make hollow points of the past look like BB's.
They are currently only available in 9mm, the specs
of which are as follows:
CNC Precision Machined
have seen all types of super performance ammo come across
the market with all kinds of hype and just as quickly
fall by the wayside. In the video at the bottom of the
article, posted by G2 Research, shows them shooting
the projectile from a G18, and some other cool guns,
but most of them at a big hunk of undressed ballastics
gel. A few shots where put into a center block, with
what appeared to be impressive results, but we are in
no way, shape or form impressed with the testing done
in the video. It all was done to show the best case
results of the performance of the projectile. We want
to see some outside sources put the projectile through
the perverbial ringer before we put our trust in this
much do they cost is the big question. We tried to go
on there website and find out for 4 days in a row with
no success. Their site appears to be having some problems.
From what we can tell they are around $40 per box plus
shipping and handling plus a credit card processing
fee. A little on the expensive side if you ask me, but
could be well worth it if the ammunition performs like
they say it will. They are in the works to produce .380
ACP, .357 Sig, .40 S&W, .45 ACP and 12ga Slugs sometime
in the furture. Watch the video below. We will pass
on more info as we get it.
01/26/2014: We were finally able to get on their website.
The 9mm RIP will be available for purchase the beginning
of Febraury 2014 from the following vendors:
Dixie Ammo Dump
Concepts and Tactics for Survival
Guns & Ammo
National Rifle Association
And soon Precision Firearms!
Update 08/24/2017: G2 Research R.I.P. now available in .380ACP, .357SIG, .40S&W, 10MM and .45ACP. They are still working on their 12GA rounds but now offer a variation of the R.I.P. bullet called Civic Duty that retains it's petals but opens up into an extreme expansion hollow point. Check out their website for more info: g2rammo.com
As always stay safe and prepared out there and remember:
Peace through Precision!
