Default G2Reasearch RIP

RIP round by G2 Research. It looks pretty scary. Probably $3 per round (I have no real idea). Watch the video on their website:

Lots of luck to get those rounds to feed reliably.

Should have colored them black. Oh, never mind, they already tried that.

I would think feeding would be a problem but apparently, the Glock 18 in their promo video was quite happy with the round.

I see a lot of flash and not a lot of substance.

- A lot of full-auto firing... Not a lot of folks are going to be using a full-auto Glock.

- There was a shot of it hitting a cinder block. Except they only showed one angle, and didn't show an exit hole.

- Several shots of them shooting ballistics gel. Ignoring everything done on full-auto, the single shot tests didn't show the results from multiple angles, or from close up. Just that side-profile view.

I'm going with a shrug on this ammo.

It's just a uesless gimmick that's been tried before.

No one really uses any multi-projectile loads because they are just not that good

Default Fancy Marketing

It's fancy marketing I believe and that's about it. I heard somewhere in the mid $40.00 price range for 20 rounds. Until it's proven that it can do anything better than a magazine full of Cor-Bons I'll let other people sort it out. Incidentally it looks very similar to the Jim Cirillo Pin Grabber of the 80's.

Ya can't beat the old fashion roll your own lead bullet for saving money and getting the job done. I always thought if one was going to war a hollow point with something stuffed inside like crushed up Thorazine would do the job and if the bullet didn't get them they would be doing the Thorazine shuffle.
