    What in the world is a "devastator" bullet??

    So I'm watching Gray's Anatomy and the Doc's are operating on a cop that got shot, when one of the of the Surgeons pulls a bullet from the body, holds it up in the light for all to see and exclaims, "I hate devastator bullets"

    Is this a Hollywood term? or a military term? Is this a term for a Golden Saber or Black Talon?

    Personally, I think getting shot with any projectile would be devastating, but then again, I ain't never been shot

    Nope, it's an actual brand. Sort of a gimmic round, supposed to be EXTRA lethal. I forget just what makes it so special but they sell them 6 rounds to a blister pack sort of like the Glasser Safety slugs.

    It sounds scary, so they use it.

    Hollywood crap. Next will come the outcry to ban them.

    Probably something like the XRBR...

    Xtreme Rabid Badger Rounds signal a paradigm shift in home defense and anti-terrorism ammunition. Utilizing the same state of the art technology that puts foam dinosaurs in those plastic capsules that dissolve in hot water, I've been able to enhance what would be otherwise boring hollowpoint ammunition with a rabid badger core. The exact process is like, totally secret and proprietary.

    Upon striking the body of your target, a rabid badger is unleashed through a process that involves a lot of really hard to understand math and physics calculations, and possibly some magic. The resulting stopping power goes beyond devastating, and is actually completely unable to be measured. In every ballistic test conducted, the badger ate the gelatin block, and then quickly turned on the testers.

    My cores use very expensive laboratory grade badgers that are 99.9% pure, and 100% insane with rabies.

    The shock of a rabid badger bursting from a teammate's body and then going totally nuts adds a psychological warfare element unmatched by any other ammunition maker in the industry today. To further enhance this, I took a cue from the A-10 Warthog, and painted a scary face on each and every round.

    Already in use by Elite Team Fighting and many other highly trained special operations forces around the world, XRBR rounds represent the zenith in small arms ammunition technology. Get yours today!

    Supposedly it is an exploding bullet. Hinckley used them on Regan. Google it.

    Home poured non jacketed hollow points using soft lead-tin alloy. These bullets mushroom well and do not fragment easily. Old news for sure.

    Forget the "devastator", I'm gonna find me some of them 99.9% pure, 100% crazy, hand painted XPBR rounds. Do they sell'em at Wal-Mart?

    Passin Through nailed it. I've seen them in .22, .38, and .45. The .38s were 95gr Silvertips with a small pistol primer glued in the hollow point. The .45 was a CCI JHP with a large pistol primer. I never inspected the .22 but IIRC, it was just a tube with some rimfire primer compound in it.

    As for TV or movie purposes, so rare I doubt any doc would ever see one, much less enough to form an opinion or to be able to recognize one.

    Heck, even all us gun experts couldn't figure it out right away.

    Found this on Wikipedia the other day...Just happened to remember that they had a link for it in their caliber comparison. Although they don't say much, it is listed.

    Handgun cartridges: .458 Devastator .458 Maximum (a 1.6" belted cartridge derived from the .458 Winchester) .458 Linebaugh Maximum ...
