    The stuff that movies are made of!

    Shot a filled SCUBA tank once with a 30-06, trying to duplicate "Jaws." Didn't explode, just fell over and hissed (loudly).

    Yeah, Mythbusters did that one, and the results were as you described. They also tried shooting propane tanks and had similar results. I think it was only when they fired tracers through a minigun or machine gun that they were able to get the gas to ignite, but it wasn't nearly as impressive as the movies often make it out to be when shooting an LP tank.

    Sentioch - There are no depleted uranium pistol rds, but there is a rare .308 rifle rd. It's called a "D.U.D.S." cartridge, made by Pacific Technica in the 70's or 80's as far as I remember. DUDS stands for Depleted Uranium Discarding Sabot, and the rd looked just like a segmented black plastic sabot with a depleted uranium penetrator core. One just sold in the Engel's collectibles auction for $150.00, and I saw one sell at the St Louis cartridge show for that same price. The incendiary rds available for pistol cartridges are mostly after-market "gun-show loads" with blue tips, but Norhern Arizona Munitions did load a skyburst tracer that was neat. It was a fused tracer/exploder that would explode after a fixed distance, or when it impacted a target, whichever came first. Those have purple tips. My favorite cartridge is the Cobra Gun co "High safety ammunition" which has multiple steel darts packed into a 9mm projectile and capped with a rubber matrix. The darts would burst into a target upon impact and could penetrate Kevlar with ease. The headstamp is IMI, but these are British, not Israeli:


    I stumbled upon this old thread by chance and this struck a chord with me. 20 yrs ago a good friend designed and attempted to market the HSA round. The designer was a very clever boffin who now lives on your side of the pond, so if you are actively interested in the history of HSA and how it works and the design story as I noted your interest in the research of these things for your book. I would be happy to fill you in on the details (which are probably too long and involved for a post!) if you are interested in following that up.

    You have a MOST AWESOME collection of weird special purpose rounds, I recognize some of them from years past. Do you keep an index card on each describing their properties, etc.?

    I've got a very small collection of nothing more than Glasers and Magsafes.
    Are any of these odd rounds still being produced?

    Neat stuff. The open-box shots are interesting to look at.
