    What context? The only thing I know of was in the movie The Matrix, but that had nothing to do with guns or ammo. The movie itself did, sure, but that one scene was about establishing the character Neo in the plot line.

    Sorry, I am drawing a blank on this question.


    The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.

    The term "blue pill" is sometimes used in place of "proof load." A blue pill is a higher-than-average proof load, generally used by the military to test firearms strength, and they are usually colored blue. Standard commercial proof loads, on the other hand, are usually red in color.

    As an Air Force crewmember we were issued three rounds with red tips that were commonly referred to as “lipstick” rounds. In reality they were beanbag rounds to be used as anti-hijacking rounds followed by the three hollow point rounds. Blue pill loads is a common term for proof loads.

    loso,

    I wondered what they were, too. There is a Youtube video of some guys who did a 3 part "torture test" on a Hi-Point that used both Red Pills and Blue Pills. He explains what they are in one of the videos. His channel is "iraqveteran8888".

    Some interesting stuff when you get sucked in by late night Youtube viewing! LOL
