There is a heavy market campaign in progress over the R.I.P. bullet. I haven’t worked with any myself, though I understand the physics behind it. I can’t see where it is any different than products that have been on the market for years. It’s essentially a Glaser Safety Slug. The concept is to have a projectile that performs like a shotgun, yet actually holds together until impact. You end up with a light projectile that is frangible. I’m sure it performs well when it comes to ballistics gel, but that’s not real world performance. What happens when it hits bone? What about performance after penetration through windshields, glass, plywood, sheet metal, and heavy clothing? I’m not seeing anything new and innovative from it, except a slick marketing campaign that may be positioning the company for bad PR. Anybody remember Winchester Black Talon ammunition?
