A couple of weeks ago, ITS was invited to Utah by Arc’teryx LEAF and NEMO Equipment to get hands on... View ArticleView Article
Update: The contest is over. Congrats to David L. on winning 300 rounds of DRT Ammo and thanks to everyone who entered!
Bryan recently attended a hog hunt organized by Dynamic Research Technologies to get a hands-on look at what makes their ammo so effective. While not out hunting, DRT shot a few different rounds into ballistic gel to illustrate what the permanent wound cavity would look like. It was very impressive to see such a wide distribution inside of the ballistic gelatin. DRT Ammunition has kindly offered to ship out 300 rounds of their lead free, penetrating frangible 9mm ammo to one lucky ITS reader.
Here’s what DRT has to say about their Terminal Shock Ammunition:
Reliability. In both function and performance, 9mm 85 grain DRT ammo will function in all 9mm weapons reliably and is the staple of the DRT line of projectiles and ammunition. Very light felt recoil and standard pressures allow the shooter to have faster follow up shots as well as better accuracy. You simply don’t need heavier bullets to inflict catastrophic damage to the target when 100% of the energy is absorbed by that target. In tests, the DRT 85 grain 9mm bullet penetrates semi-hard barriers like sheetrock, plywood, car doors, bone and most glass, then still performing well passing through clothing and into the gelatin test block. Utilizing a Hollow Point Flat Based (HPFB) design, the bullet is engineered to delay its expansion 1-2 inches before the jacket begins to peel back exposing the core. Penetration is 11-12” in ballistic gelatin with a wound cavity is typically 3” in diameter with complete fragmentation of the core.
