New design for bullets

These new bullets will slow you down if you get hit.

The clip of the watermelon seemed to blow apart pretty good.

intersting. I would be curious to see how much that thing tumbles on a longer shot (more than a couple feet)

Looks like they combine the worst aspect of birdshot with the worst aspect of FMJ, with none of the benefits of a quality JHP.

Thats kind of my thought. And I imagine they are crazy expensive.

seems like a "reasonable" personal protection round.

but seems like one could accomplish that with a good old blunderbuss.

I think that idea might be better if the whole projectile could split, like you see segmented shotgun slugs out there designed for defensive purposes. There wouldn't be the need for all that fancy machining either. But I'm not sure if splitting up such a small amount of mass would be beneficial vs a hollow point flattening out.

frangible bullets have been around for decades. Atleast that have predictable flight paths. But even the trend of frangible bullets has passed.

I want a bullet that retains as much of it's mass as possible. Every grain that a bullet looses on impact is also lost penetration.

Penetration is most important, then reliable expansion.

Yeah, kind of like frag bullets but would split into defined halves or thirds instead of turning into dust and random small chunks. I'm sure it's not a new idea and I'm sure it's been tried. Shotgun slug version for reference:
