    All the ballistics tests show the ammo is crap.

    Yep, waste of money. Ballistics test show it and some have had feeding issues. I will stick with my Federal Hydra Shok's and Hornady Critial Duty rounds.

    G2 Research's RIP ammo has been pretty thoroughly examined here-

    Anyone heard of "RIP" ammunition?

    G2 Research's RIP Ammo - Ballistic testing, Phase One | The Truth About Guns

    G2 Research's RIP Ammo - Ballistic testing, Phase Two | The Truth About Guns

    -and the results are not good. In short, G2 Research exaggerated their velocity and KE numbers (to sell their product to those who rely on it to choose their ammo) and used the combined trickery of using (much) smaller than normal gel blocks without any scalar reference in an attempt to make their ammo appear to produce larger temp cavities than it actually did.

    Any company that has to rely on misdirection and half-truths to sell their ammo is not someone that I want to buy ammo from -especially if it is ammo that I may someday bet my life on. There are better options available.
