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).

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.
