    I think if it recoils enough to make you pee yourself, it's time to start wearing some Depends.

    Only good reason I can think of not to keep shooting is because all your fingers are broken.

    This is a good point. I can see where these holes might destabilize the bullet. I can also see where they might whistle. The comment about the sound tracers for blind people is pretty funny.

    That does seem like it would be pretty interesting... a bullet that whistles. I would love to try a few; a couple .357mags at 100yds would make a pretty interesting show maybe.

    Sounds like a gimmick to me.

    I don't quite get how a compensated bullet would work...The whole point of a compensated barrel is to allow the gases to bleed OUT of the barrel, so how would putting holes in the bullet help with that? Are they actually trying to claim that those little vents will act as a muzzle break as the the last 1/4 inch of the bullet leaves the barrel? Silly.

    Edit: Another thing I just thought of, as others have mentioned those holes could create a bullet that doesn't spin as well, what about the gases that will be blasting out of the holes as the bullet leaves? There is no guarantee that those gases will exit evenly, which could then throw the bullets spin off even more.

    The compensating holes in a barrel allow gas to exert a force opposite recoil just before the bullet leaves the muzzle. This also reduces the bullet's velocity, acting like a shorter barrel. For the bullet itself to exert a compensating force, it must shed an equal amount of its own energy or velocity. If the bullet with side holes is sufficiently hard, it won't obdurate completely into the grooves, thereby allowing gasses to leak forward. This will also achieve a bit of compensation and further reduce velocity. Depending on the size and arrangements of the holes, the bullet may be able to achieve several pitches of sound, thereby whistling "Dixie."

    It looks to me like they are machined rather than cast or sweged. Then, I was wondering how much they would cost. So I emailed the company and asked about retail prices.

    He emailed me back and didn't give any prices; he cannot sell them here. Either he cannot get an export license from Italy (or the European Community, who knows?) or they are viewed as 'armor penetrating' bullets and denied entry into the U. S. Or, he just doesn't want to bother and made up the excuse.

    In my view of over forty years of shooting and reloading, they're made from 100% snake oil. It's okay, the cast bullets I shoot most do very well.

    At least if I got shot with THAT bullet I wouldn't feel quite so bad, it's sooooo purdy!!!!!!
