Hmm...our U.S. Military complains that the 5.56 mm bullet doesn't contain the stopping power that certain situations call for, sometimes. With that on the back burner, take a look at new blended-metal technology from LeMas Ltd. This ammunition is (claimed) to be able to punch through hardened armor, yet expand when it hits softer targets. A recent report surfaced that one of our contractors in Iraq had the opportunity to use this bullet, and the subsequent shot that an Iraqi gunman recieved in his buttocks ripped him a new one...literally. His lower left abdomen was shredded by the bullet. I'm wondering how this bullet does it. I'm also wondering, on a practical level, if we should equip our soldiers with it. (I'm not sure about giving it to your everyday, normal soldiers, but I think giving our special forces the opportunity at least to use it might be warranted.) Anyway...anyone who can tell me more about these things and/or wants to comment, hit me.
